RoboGirls - Empowering girls in STEAM through robotics and coding

The RoboGirls project focuses on building the capacity of teacher educators to organise and implement innovative hands-on STEAM activities and events(such as lesson plans, workshops, thematic school days) with the use of robotics and coding to narrow the gender gap, empower, encourage and actively engage girls to digital technologies so to be able to act and play an active role in the digital age. Through the empowerment of girls, their self-esteem and confidence in relation to the use and capabilities they think they have towards digital technologies will be enhanced, making them consider following a relevant career in the future and be active in the future of the digital sector. To achieve that, RoboGirls consortium will develop innovative pedagogical material, dynamic resources, gamified tools, and organise and implement and a series of blended learning trainings, events and implementations for teachers and students.

The target groups of the project are teachers, primary and secondary students, school leaders, school staff, academics, women in the ICT sectors and digital technologies, education policy decision makers, volunteers, and parents in a participatory and empowering manner.
