Robotics Design Challenge Combats Gender Imbalance

09 February 2024

Working alongside Girls Go Circular’s Women & Girls in STEM Forum, Arrow Electronics provided the financial backing needed for the recent Green Robot Challenge event.

Held in Brussels, the objective of this challenge was to encourage greater female involvement in engineering disciplines. It saw 270 female school pupils from 19 different countries across the European continent participating. There were 90 teams (each comprised of 3 people) competing overall, with all of them looking to develop robotic prototypes that can have a positive effect on the global environment in the future. The winning team was Rocky Co.2, who came from Malta. Their prototype is intended to lower greenhouse gas levels for removing carbon dioxide from the air.
“We believe these learning opportunities play a critical role in cultivating female STEM leaders in the communities we serve,” Christina Frantz, Arrow’s Director of Corporate Affairs, commented. “Girls Go Circular is on the front lines of this effort, and we are proud to support the program’s work."
