MN FIRST – GRIP and STEM in Action

MN FIRST – GRIP and STEM in Action

Team Leaders, a new opportunity to hear from actual STEM professionals and a substantial update on GRIP.


The Robettes, Team 2177, are hosting an all day training session, Girls in Robotics Improving Performance (GRIP!). The hands-on training event is on Saturday, Nov 11.  Because of the generous support of a new sponsor, the event is now free for all attendees.  The event is aimed specifically at girls that want to improve their technical abilities and gain new skills they can take back to their team.  The three tracks (Mechanical, Electrical, and Programming) allow them to focus on the area of their team they want to have the biggest impact in.
