Can you work within a 'budget' to provide a safe container to protect cargo dropped from a plane? Can you design a Lego car that will go faster that your friends? Or build a bridge that is strong enough for one of our robots to cross? Have fun working together and using your problem solving skills to build 'real world' projects on a small scale.
How many female engineers can you name? The chances are you do not know many or even any! Robogals are here to change that. Robogals is a student-run organisation that aims to engage girls in engineering topics from a young age, with the long-term goal of increasing female enrolment in engineering, science and technology courses at universities.
