A Little Faith Goes A Long Way

Written by

Earlier in the year, Robogals sponsored a bright nine year old girl Faith from Wollongong to go overseas and compete at the FLL International Open in Canada. She is the only female member of the Project Bucephalus Team that represented Australia at the event. The team managed to take out the 1st place Programming Award!

Marita and Mark: What Have You Been Up To?

Written by

It has now been over eighteen months since Robogals founder Marita Cheng and co-founder Mark Parncutt handed over the reigns to the next leadership generation. They recently took some time to answer a few questions about what they have been up to and their time in day to day involvement with Robogals.

Easter and Engineering - A Great Mix!

Written by

Robogals Perth recently ran an Easter themed workshop at the University of Western Australia and received some lovely feedback from mother and student, Carol and Siena respectively. This is just a select example of the feedback our volunteers receive. It is moments like these which further validate everything that Robogals does and goes to show that all our volunteers hard work is worthwhile! 

We wish Siena all the best in all her future engineering aspirations.

Girls learning about and engaging with STEM, a beautiful sight

This blog was written by the current Robogals Loughborough (UK) President Lope Ariyo. She was actually a student during a Robogals visit to her school before going on to start up the chapter at her university!

I remember sitting in my sixth form (year 12 equivalent) computing class and being the only girl, so when my teacher explained what Robogals was and mentioned the opportunity to go to a workshop I jumped at the chance. I don’t remember much about the workshop itself but it was refreshing to see women doing the same sort of subjects that I liked and to not think I was weird for wanting to do ‘guy’ subjects. I still have my certificate congratulating me for ‘completing the Robogals Foundation Course, held on the 3rd & 10th November 2010, at Imperial College London’ signed by Victoria Bloom and Sonya Chan (who has since become a ‘Robogals Life Member’).
