The REC Foundation recently caught up with Melissa, Sofia, Janvi, and
Parima with the Hopkinetics, Hopkinton High School’s VEX Robotics
Competition Teams 2602 A & B to discuss Girl Powered. The girls hold
a variety of roles on the teams with Melissa as the team builder and
designer, Sofia also a builder, Janvi an amaze and design lead and
Parima a STEM Research lead. Each of the girls shared how they got
engaged on the team, what they enjoy most about robotics, and their
perspective on engaging more young women in STEM and robotics:

VEX Robotics World Championship Volunteer Registration Now Open!

All season long, event volunteers are the heart and soul of VEX
competitions. This couldn’t be more true at the VEX Robotics World
Championship, where we bring 1,400 of the best robotics teams from
around the world to compete to become World Champions! This year VEX
Worlds will take place April 19-25, 2017, in Louisville, Kentucky.
Join us and be part of the culminating event of the season where the
energy and excitement is palpable and participating is rewarding for

are ready to view as the event gets closer. Visit:

Give your Students the Advantage

By giving your students the opportunity to earn an Industry
Certification, you give them an important tool to help shape their
future. We offer two industry certifications - Pre-Engineering and
Robotics. These certifications prove your students are industry-job
entry ready by providing them an opportunity to demonstrate the
knowledge and occupational skills they have learned in your programs.

Learn More at RoboticsEducation.org/Certification - http://roboticseducation.org/certification

Sponsor Spotlight: NASA

NASA’s Vision - http://www.nasa.gov: We reach for new heights and
reveal the unknown for the benefit of humankind. To do that,
thousands of people have been working around the world – and off of
it – for more than 50 years, trying to answer some basic questions.
What’s out there in space? How do we get there? What will we find?
What can we learn there, or learn just by trying to get there, that
will make life better here on Earth?

At the REC Foundation, we appreciate all NASA does to help students
participate in robotics engineering!

The REC Foundation’s Mission Statement The REC Foundation seeks to
increase student interest and involvement
in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by
engaging students in hands-on, sustainable, and
affordable curriculum-based robotics engineering programs across the
U.S. and internationally.
