"Is There a Robot in Your Future?

Women@SCS presented their successful workshop "Is There A Robot In Your Future?" at this year's Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) conference for the 3rd successive year. This is a nationally held event aimed at increasing the participation of girls and women in mathematics and science. Once again Allison Bruce (Ph.D, Robotics) did a terrific job leading our Women@SCS team. This year's team included Ariadna Font Llitjos, Nancy Chen, Sue Yi Chew, Anjuli Gupta, Jennifer Li, Bernice Ma, Leah Miller, Denise Noyes. and Carol Frieze, the Women@SCS program coordinator.

Two sessions of our workshop were attended by about thirty middle school girls. Our robotics workshop has proved to be a very successful part of EYH gaining high acclaim from previous participants. One of the girls, Maggie, was attending "Is There A Robot In Your Future?" for the third year!
