Description

Robogals Queen’s is a chapter of the international, student-run organization Robogals that aims to increase female participation in engineering and technology through fun and educational initiatives aimed at girls in primary and secondary school. Robogals aims to remove the social construct that engineering and other STEM fields are ‘male’ subjects. This is achieved through running fun, interactive workshops with girls in elementary and high school in robotics and engineering to show them their own capabilities and build confidence and interest in the subjects.

The mandate of Robogals Queen’s Chapter is to substantially increase the number of young women pursuing engineering in their post-secondary studies and careers.
