FIRST Robotics has goals of encouraging interest in science and technology and increasing social networking skills amongst high school age students. Some of these goals can be unconsciously activated through mindset priming. However, the gender of the participant matters when looking at the behaviors evoked by the activation of an unconscious goal. We conducted a study to measure the effects of mindset priming and gender on social networking and academics in FIRST Robotics.
