The day this photo was taken, was a very meaningful day for our team, 8110X, because we visited our local daycare center to introduce kids in our community to the VEX Robotics. By doing this we helped inspire a large classroom of mostly girls, to pursue their interests in STEM. It is important to empower young girls like the ones in our photo, because it can help close a gender gap that currently exists in the STEM career field today. By simply setting up a few activities, we helped them discover the fun in engineering, and their potential in STEM.
