Maine Robotics and the 4-H Program of Maine (Science) are collaborating for a two event program in Southern Maine.
A full day workshop will be conducted for girls in Lewiston, Maine at the library in a diverse and economically challenged community. The goal of this workshop will be to allow Maine youth the opportunity to work with technology in a highly interactive nature while also increasing their literacy in several STEM fields. Discussion will also include an understanding of what fields are available with in the STEM world.
A second full day workshop for adult mentors will be held at the 4-H headquarters in Falmouth with the goal of training the mentors who will then reach out to work with girls within the 4-H program here in Maine. The outcome from this workshop will be to increase the impact of the training by impacting the adults who will then recruit and work with the girls in the 4-H program as it relates to robotics and STEM in general.
