Girl Scout Troop 61220 placed 4th in a Robotics Competition at Eastwood High School. The girls competed with several teams from the Socorro and Ysleta Independent School Districts. Troop 61220 was the only Girl Scout troop to  compete as on official GS troop and were the only team representing the El Paso Independent School District.

Prior to this competition the girls and troop leaders applied and received a grant from Google for VEX IQ robot. Some of the requirements that were included that the leaders must attend a 2-day training and participate in a VEX IQ competition and that the troop must compete again the following season. The girls came in 6th place in the competition and moved on the the finals. The girls placed 4th in the final competition.

The team named themselves the "Cookie Monsters" and were able to use their troop number as their team number. With an adrenaline rush as a resultof this competition the girls are more than eager to compete in the next robotics season. 

Congratulations, Girl Scout Troop 61220!
