Robotics provide teen girls with path to personal and professional development

Learning how to build and programme your own robot promotes personal development while also providing a pathway to careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths).

That’s according to two American girls who were at the UN this week to take part in the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Youth Forum.

Erika Broeker, 17, is a member of Green Girl Robotics while Olivia Crutchfield, also 17, is part of Blue Twilight 2220.
