Robogals - Lego Robotics workshops
Robogals is a global charity which was founded in Australia with the aim of encouraging more young girls to take up STEM subjects. Each chapter is run solely by university students - for instance our London chapter is based at Imperial College London and our volunteers are Imperial students.
Usually throughout the term we run weekly Lego Robotics workshops (mainly targeted at girls) which schools can book with us in advance. At the workshop, girls will have the chance to build the robots and learn how to program them.
Girls will be able to build complex Robots using our Lego Mindstorms Kit.
Girls will also be able to program these robots to take on certain tasks, depending on the challenges given to them. Examples of these include being able to navigate around a simple obstacle course.
Girls will be able to grasp the basics of programming using Lego Mindstorms Software EV3 or NXT.To book this activity, please contact:

Grants for school
The Royal Institution runs two enrichment and enhancement grant schemes. Grants of up to £500 are available to UK-registered state schools to host a STEM activity selected from the STEM Directory.
There are a number of other organisations that offer grants to schools.
