VEX Robotics Girl Powered Workshop

As part of the Girl Powered Initiative, our VEX Robotics Team hosted multiple all-girls workshops which were sponsored by both Google and RECF(Robotics Education & Competition Foundation). Team 315 Paradigm mentored over 500+ teams and 2000+ participants in an effort to abolish the boundary between girls and STEM. As part of this workshop, my role was to help construct the instruction manual and the robot that the teams would be building, while mentoring the teams on the day of the event. Pictures and videos of the event are below.

ZeroUI: Robotics for Special Needs Workshop

I volunteered with a program that helps introduce robotics to children with special needs. As part of this program, my role was to run a building group, where I would help a group of 5-8 students complete their project. I also developed curriculum and made challenges for these students to work on.
