In collaboration with Alleghany Highlands YMCA, we are excited to be able to offer a new Robotics program. This is a fun program that focuses on designing, building, programming and testing robots. Skills like wiring, programming, and sensor operations are learned, which will help girls discover careers in the field of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Girls also learn valuable life skills, like teamwork, problem solving, decision-making and social skills. This 4 session series will entice girls to think like scientists and engineers while having a fun, creative, hands-on learning experience. Space is limited, so sign up NOW!
