Again, thanks to all the teams who competed and all the volunteers who helped make our event a success!
This weekend, 8 of the team’s girls visited our friends at Walton Robotics for an all day conference about the role that girls play not only in FIRST Robotics, but also in STEM fields. We started off the day by helping to put together “Outreach in a Box” kits which went home with teams who attended as a resource to expose younger girls interested in STEM to chemical engineering. Following that, we attended a panel discussion on the challenges facing women in STEM careers and got some advice from professionals. Finally, we ended the day with a creative engineering challenge and LinkedIn training.
A good time was had by all and we’d like to thank Walton Robotics and Georgia FIRST for the great day!
