This society has been set up to act as a chapter of Robogals (www.robogals.org). This is a multi-national, student run organisation in which the committee, and student volunteers, aim to promote female participation in engineering by conducting fun workshops for local students.
The aim of this society is to engage Brighton and Hove based pupils into science and engineering. The current female participation in Engineering, throughout the country, is around 11%, and Sussex’s own statistics don’t fare too will. We want to promote engineering as a discipline that is as much for females as males. We will do so by engaging volunteers across all disciplines to get involved in our fun workshops, which are run for local schools to engage in.
