Robogals In Conversation: Nicole Brown

Written by

Late last year Robogals Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Nicole Brown took the time to have a candid conversation with us about all things Robogals, taking a look back over how the past year went but also a look at all the exciting developments for 2015 including new opportunities for volunteers. She reveals her biggest highlight from 2014, provides an insight into the Robogals rebranding process to take place later this year and also reveals her secrets to time management.

Robogals In Conversation: Monika Berlot

Written by

Welcome to the very first Robogals In-Conversation Series blog, a new series which aims to highlight the stories, initiatives and volunteer efforts of the fantastic Robogals community. 

The first conversation involves Monika Berlot, a nineteen year old engineering student from the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra. She is a particularly interesting case as she herself was a student during a Robogals rural school visit during a year 11 physics class in her hometown of Cooma. Fast forward two years and now she is a Robogals chapter executive.

Since returning from overseas, Faith has kindly written this blog about her impressive journey...

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.
