About Us

San Francisco's first and only all-girls robotics team

The Missfits are an all-female community robotics team based in San Francisco. We aim to take on a male dominated field, and show girls how fun and rewarding engineering can be. Our student-led team introduces female youth to engineering and technology. Only 24% of STEM careers are filled by women, and we want to help increase that percentage.

Our team designs the robot, builds it, and competes in regional and international FRC competitions. Outside of competitions, we focus on introducing youth in San Francisco to STEM. We also want to help make our community a better place by giving opportunities to those who may lack them. Through our robot demonstrations and hands-on workshops in underserved communities, we aim for that "wow!" moment where a 12-year-old girl discovers that STEM is her passion too.
