Two 11 Year Old Girls Win Emmy and X Prize

By Twice As Good Show, Special for  USDR

Trivia Question: Who are the only two kids to have won both an X Prize and an Emmy? Well they are girls; they are into STEM; they are twins, and they are only 11 years old!  Tonight Hadley Robertson and Delaney Robertson, the featured co-hosts of the Twice As Good Show on PBS, received an Emmy at the 40th Annual National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Boston/New England Emmy Awards Ceremony.  The two were the youngest winners on the red carpet event held at the Marriott Copley Place in Boston, Massachusetts.  Their Emmy, in the Children/Youth category, was given for their work co-hosting a Twice As Good episode entitled A Taste of  Maine. 

Just over a year ago Hadley Robertson and Delaney Robertson won the Los Angeles based Google Lunar XPrize Moonbots Challenge, an international robotics competition culminating in Tokyo, Japan in which two or more person teams compete to design and create a lunar robotic rover.  The competitors were judged in part on their robot’s ability to perform lunar tasks and in part on their ability to communicate STEM  concepts.
