Girl Powered Workshop Presented by Google

Google will be sponsoring a two-day workshop for girls in grades 6-12 who are interested in learning about the VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) program. 

The Girl Powered Workshop is a collaboration between the Robotics Education & Competition (REC) Foundation and Google. In the VEX Robotics Competition, teams of students are tasked with designing and building a robot to play against other teams in a game-based engineering challenge. This two-day workshop will be held at the Google Campus in New York City.

This is open to any girl in grades 6-12 who is a beginner or has very limited experience with robotics and would like to learn more about designing and building robots. We will have several trained volunteers there to assist each participant.
