“It was a cool experience” says Grade 10 student Talia Dexter-Nickel about her experience at the All Girl Robot Fight Club – an immersive program in robotics for high school students. The club took place at the University of Manitoba in the Faculty of Engineering on Saturdays over a period of 7 weeks.
In the club, Talia and other students from around the city were challenged with design and coding challenges using Lego Mindstorm kits. Talia described it as a “great example of what coding can do and how code can be applied for a specific purpose in robotics”
Talia took the skills she learned in the club and competed at the Manitoba Robotics Games, winning first place in the “Lego Challenge”. Congratulations Talia!
