The Newton LigerBots will host a free, one-evening, two-hour workshop — Girls + Tools! — on October 17, as an opportunity for Newton Public Schools students ages 13-18 to have fun with problem solving and mechanical activities, even if they have little or no experience in robotics or engineering. Planning for this event started last summer among several female mentors and students involved in LigerBots who want to show others how much fun engineering can be. It will be held 6:30-8:30PM in the Newton South HS wood shop (Room 9271). Register here.
