General Info

Stockbridge, GA – October 8, 2019 – Dutchtown High School's TSA chapter is proud to be one of the hundred Girl Powered workshops that will take place around the world during the month of October, coinciding with the United Nation’s International Day of the Girl. Now in its third year, this global initiative was created through a partnership between the Robotics Education & Competition (REC) Foundation and VEX Robotics, who are working to redefine the face of STEM and make robotics reflective of the world we live in, and the one we want to leave behind.

The Girl Powered workshops are meant to engage and inform young women about STEM, connect young women with mentors, highlight examples of how women are changing the world, provide tools for success, and offer an environment where all students’ confidence and abilities can flourish.

The Girl Powered workshop event will feature hands-on activities, robotics demonstrations, and a STEM guest speaker. 

How is Girl Powered making an impact? The answer might depend on who you ask. Across the robotics community, Girl Powered has enabled 350 new teams, captured personal stories from girls in robotics through an expanded online challenge, launched the Girl Powered Pledge, nearly tripled the number of workshops, and engaged dynamic female thought leaders at Girl Powered Connect events hosted at VEX Worlds.
