  • Civil Engineering

STEPS is an opportunity for girls to learn more about what STEM professionals do, by working in group settings, to leverage teamwork skills as in real-world settings. In addition, STEPS targets leadership skills by giving the opportunity for each of the campers to borrow an EV3 kits for the year.  Interested participant will be given guidelines for starting a club, finding a teacher to mentor, etc. The hope is these clubs will then come back and participate in different robotics competitions.
