Robotics for Girls: Get involved!

CERN Micro Club and RightsTech Women are organizing a free, educational event in Geneva, “Robotics for girls”. We are looking for volunteer coaches who speak both English and French and are willing to transmit basic notions of programming to girls aged between 10 and 18-year-old.

The idea is to familiarize girls with basic programming concepts and human-machine interactions through the use of the educational robots “Poppy Ergo Jr”. Programming an object (such as a robot) is interesting as it gives immediate physical feedback and allows to learn quickly. We believe that early exposure and familiarity in a dedicated environment is key to demystifying technology. During the workshop, participants will also learn about the human right to education, including science education, in a child-friendly format. Read More
