Founded by the United Nations in 2010, Girl Up is a global organization that aims to empower young women and promote gender equality. Merrill’s Bainbridge Island Girl Up (BIGU) club will join a community of over 1900 other clubs in the US alone, each of which is fostering social change and empowering young women.

Spartronics team member Merrill Keating has founded a Girl Up club for middle and high school girls! Founded by the United Nations in 2010, Girl Up is a global organization that aims to empower young women and promote gender equality. Merrill’s Bainbridge Island Girl Up (BIGU) club will join a community of over 1900 other clubs in the US alone, each of which is fostering social change and empowering young women.


On February 26 at Bainbridge Island City Council's meeting, Mayor Kol Medina issued a proclamation at City Hall declaring the month of March 2019 as “Bainbridge Island Girl Up Month,” coinciding with International Women’s Day on March 8th.


Gender equality and getting more girls involved in STEM is a mission that Spartronics can get behind; several team members (pictured above)  journeyed to City Hall to support Merrill and Bainbridge Island Girl Up.


Bainbridge Island Girl’s Up Month also coincides with our All-Robotics Open House on March 13, where attendees will have a chance to meet some of the girls on Spartronics who are already helping to diversify STEM.


We wish Merrill and the rest of BIGU the best of luck in forging the next generation of female leaders!
