The Robogals Science Challenge is an online competition for girls aged 5-15. The competition consists of 2 components: the minor challenges and a major challenge. Spanning 4 months, the Science Challenge will give participants a chance to explore different STEM topics through minor challenges. Towards the end of the competition, participants will design their own project and present their findings through a video submission.
As part of the Science Challenge, there will be a series of workshops held in six major cities across Australia. The Science and Engineering Day (SED) is a half-day event featuring STEM workshops from bridge building to programming LEGO robots and much more. SED provides an opportunity for participants to complete activities similar to the minor challenges with additional mentoring and support of Robogals volunteers. Activities completed at SEDs will count towards Minor Challenge entries.
