Welcome! The Gael Force Robotics 2023 Girl Powered Workshop is a day-long student-led engineering and robotics event meant to touch on the foundational skills of robotics. With members from a variety of backgrounds, Gael Force Robotics (GFR) aims to promote the diversification of STEM through the inclusion of gender minorities. This workshop is open to incoming 6th to 12th graders of any skill level and has a registration fee of $20.
Our workshop consists of 4 different stations: Build, Programming, Drive and Game Strategy, and Gael Force Academy (GFA). The Build and Programming stations are interactive and meant to teach foundational skills essential to these aspects of robotics. The Drive and Game Strategy station will introduce participants to the VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) and guide them through gameplay. Our newest addition, the GFA station, offers participants a sample of GFA, a development program within GFR that is designed to familiarize new members with VRC and teach skills essential for competing in VRC, and combines technical skills with equally valuable soft skills.
Overall, the Gael Force Robotics 2023 Girl Powered Workshop is meant to encourage ingenuity through enjoyable challenges and exercises and promote diversity. For questions or additional information, please reach out to us at [email protected]. We look forward to seeing you there :)
