I did learn a little something about Elinor from a quote she gave to the reporter. Here is a bit from the photo gallery:
"Rebekah Preston, 11, Elinor Fox, 12, and McKinley Thygerson, 11, of Team Tau does their special secret handshake before competing in the SeaPerch Northern Utah Underwater Competition at Weber State University. Their robot, named Beaver, was built by the team of homeschooled girls who all love science and engineering. Though most of the teams were boys, the girls said it was important for girls to compete in engineering competitions to show that "girls have great ideas too." "We're aren't just going to let the future go into the men's hands." Elinor said.
I had no idea I was raising such a feminist! Good for her!
You go, girls!
