Our Solution: We feel the best way to inspire girls to participate in STE(A)M is through a fun, engaging, and rewarding project that will empower young ladies to succeed and acheive greatness. Hopefully after they have success on this project, they will want to do more in STEAM.
The Challenge: Since the Flying Toasters have done very well developing robots for FIRST, we are building on that strength in sponsoring a challenge for young ladies. This Challenege will be for the young ladies to form a team to design, develop, machine, assemble, program, debug, and operate a robot. As part of the South Lyon High School Vs. South Lyon East High School Football game, which the community attends each year, both schools promote a "Pink out" to promote awareness for breast cancer.
For Fall 2016, this team of girls will develop a T-shirt throwing robot, establish a training program for future girl teams to operate it, and develop a corresponding informative display that will compliment the robot in promoting breast cancer awareness.
