Julie Townsend is one of Los Angeles FTC Region’s original mentors when our region just started out and there were only 15 teams. She was instrumental in starting up the Region and in keeping us going those early years! She has continued to be a mentor every year for 10 years to the two Girl Scout Teams, Team 25 Rock n Roll Robots and 5218 JavaBots. Julie has touched the lives (and creative scientific minds) of nearly 50 high school girls. What a treat for these girls to say they learned robotics from a true Rocket Scientist!
