Girls and robotics go together like gears and pistons. Through our innovative STEM-based robotics program, girls of all ages can work in teams to unlock their creativity to design, program, and build their very own robot. Will their robots spin in a circle, or pick up pencils, or push a block across the floor? That’s for them to decide!
We will train leaders to lead specialized age-appropriate robotics sessions in troop meetings, and we will order all materials. We'll also host a fall kick-off event and a special end-of-year robotics expo where the girls can show off their fantastic creations.
As girls problem-solve to gain a deeper understanding of science, technology, and computers, they’ll also learn how to collaborate as part of a team to create a one-of-a-kind robot. And they might even discover a 21st century career path.
