Join Placer Robotics at Hewlett Packard Enterprise in Roseville, CA for the 1st Annual Placer Girl Powered Workshop for elementary and middle school girls! The two-day workshop allows girls grades 4-8 to form teams to design and build a robot to play against other teams in a game-based engineering VEX IQ Challenge Slapshot. Use of Robotics kits, lunches, snacks and event t-shirt are included.
