General Info

Girl Powered VEX Robotics Workshop

Google will be sponsoring a 2-day girls only workshop for high school and middle school girls, grades 7 - 12, who are interested in learning about the VEX Robotics Program

The VEX Robotics 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 2-day workshop will be held at the Google Campus in Seattle, WA.

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

Registration Instructions

Students that want to attend the workshop will need to register through the RobotEvents.com Workshop event site.  This will require creating a free Robot Events account either by an adult representative or the student.  Adults can register multiple individuals under their own account.  Please contact Lisa Schultz (Lisa_Schultz@roboticseducation.org) if you have registration questions.
