Girls’ Robotics Tourney at Tahoma High School
Teams of girls from across the Pacific Northwest are on their way to the 4th annual “Girls’ Generation” Robotics Competition. Free and open to the public, this event is hosted by the Tahoma Robotics Club, and will take place on Saturday, October 17th from 9 AM to 5:30 PM at Tahoma High School (18200 SE 240th St, Covington, WA).
“Girls’ Generation” is a competitive game aimed at encouraging girls to get involved in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) based activities, which are generally male dominated. High school girls will operate six robots at a time, guiding them around the field, constructing towers from plastic tote boxes, and capping the towers with green recycling bins.
Everyone is encouraged to come and watch the SOTABots (Tacoma), Lion Robotics (Auburn), Skunkworks (Seattle), Bear Metal (Maple Valley) and 26 other teams from around the Northwest. It’s free, and a great way to support your local robotics team.
Today we had to make some changes in our chassis due to having to fit more in the robot.
We are hosting our yearly Bear Metal Auction tonight!
