Robogals Society





About Us

Robogals is an international organisation run by students, aiming to inspire and engage young girls in the world of STEM. Last year alone, volunteers worked with more than 500 young people, as well as winning the Innovation Award at the organisation’s EMEA conference. This year we have once again won the Innovation Award, and a looking to work with even more young people.

At Sussex, the group meets once a fortnight to train volunteers how to lead fun and engaging workshops for children.

As a volunteer with Robogals you will have the chance to learn how to work with a wide variety of tech, to run workshops with children, gain valuable experience to boost your CV and also have the opportunity to meet other students from a variety of disciplines.

Everyone is welcome, regardless of gender or degree. Our committee and group of volunteers are made up of students from a range of backgrounds and abilities, from both the sciences and the humanities. We train all volunteers from the ground up, so feel no need to have any background in STEM.

If you are not a student at the University of Sussex, you are still welcome to get involved. Please get in touch, via Facebook or email, for more information.


Meet the committee:


Saloua El Fantroussi - President

Email: sussex.president@robogals.org

I lead the chapter, working closely with the Regional and Global Robogals teams, as well as the Student Union and the Engineering and Informatics school. I support all other committee members, aiding in workshop development, finances, travel, socials and marketing.

I’m our volunteers’ primary contact within the committee, answering any queries they may have, and supporting them in achieving the most out of their time with Robogals. This includes organising socials, supporting the incoming committee, running the society’s social media and managing event sign ups.

In addition to my secretary role, I am the welfare rep, meaning volunteers can come to me with any concerns regarding uni life and their experience within the society.
