    G.E.A.Rs: Girls Explore Adventures in Robotics

    A weekend program for girls in grades 6-8. The GEARs activities introduce physics and engineering concepts in a fun way, while placing emphasis on basic teamwork, creativity, and design. Participants work in teams using Lego® Mindstorm NXT kits to program, design and build creative devices to meet a set of engineering requirements.  Women engineering students volunteer to teach and guide the teams. They work together to successfully solve the robotic challenges. Through the process, role modeling and a strong mentoring relationship is developed. Sample Schedule
