RECF (Robotics Education and Competition Foundation) provided the lots of great prizes and t-shirts for a Girl Powered sponsored event at Jolley Elementary's new STEAM lab. The VARC girls volunteered to help host a RECF Girl Powered event in Vermillion in Oct 2017. Female speakers in STEM fields spoke with the girls about what inspired them to pursue their career. We learned about women inventors and their patents. VARC volunteers helped younger girls assemble a robot and run it through a maze. They also made electrical circuits out of dough using conductive and non-conductive materials.
