October 1st, 2022 from 9:00am to– 4:30pm at Andover High School, Andover MA
Open to all girls on Massachusetts FTC teams.
Join us for the Girls in Engineering and Robotics Symposium (GEARS)!
The goal: Give the girls of FIRST Technical Challenge teams an opportunity to meet, network, and learn.
Being female in Robotics is no longer an oddity – but there are unique elements that girls bring to robotics that need reflection and celebration. This symposium is a chance for the girls of FTC to see how their involvement impacts their careers in engineering and robotics , as well as learn how best to utilize their knowledge to improve their futures.
