HOST A GIRL POWERED EVENT!
The REC Foundation & VEX Robotics are inviting event partners, teachers, coaches, and mentors to host a Girl Powered event between October 6-15, 2017, to coincide with the International Day of the Girl! These workshops are intended to inspire young women and girls, who might be new to robotics and STEM, to engage in the fields and become excited about science and robotics. The first 100 events registered on RobotEvents.com will receive a special event toolkit that will include giveaways, marketing materials, and activity ideas. Participant fees will be waived for events that are free. If you are NOT registered as an Event Partner, you can submit your event details on GirlPowered.com and our team will register your event on RobotEvents.com!

Not Getting These E-mails?
Many organizations automatically block group e-mails. You have two options:
1) Request that your IT department “White List” emails from mail.vresp.comand/or white list e-mails from the
following IP addresses: 184.108.40.206/24 220.127.116.11/24 18.104.22.168/24
2) Make sure the alternate email address in your RobotEvents.com team account is different — not a school address.
