MerseySTEM Girl’s Robot Challenge

An amazing day was had by all at MerseySTEM’s Girl’s Robotics Challenge!

The event was hosted at Cowley International School and both students from Cowley and De La Salle attended the event. The event was part of a project funded by St Helens Chamber of Commerce aimed at engaging young women in STEM.

The girls were split into mixed school groups to develop team-work & communication skills, building a robot during the morning session so they could battle it out in the afternoon.
