RoboGirls is a robotics event hosted by Mercy High School, FIRST Team 1481, The Riveters. This fun-filled day will let 6th, 7th and 8th grade girls from Metro Detroit learn principles of robotics and compete for prizes.

Learn about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) by building and competing with your own robot. Learn how to plan an engineering project. Build a functioning robot. Program it to run by itself, test and adjust your design to make it fast and accurate.

No special robotics knowledge is required for your student to have a rewarding and fun experience. Everything the students need to know will be taught and coached. Mentors will be on hand to support the competitors including professional engineers from ZF, Ford, GM, and Chrysler, computer scientists, members of the Mercy High School Robotics Team (The Riveters) and Members of FIRST in Michigan.
