The Robogals Science Challenge is a great nationwide science competition for girls, which enables participants to learn a bit more about science and engineering by conducting science projects or experiments with a friend, parent, or another mentor. Entries to the competition are submitted online in the form of videos, photos and writing in three age categories. The competition spans four months, with the best 12 groups or individuals being awarded for their efforts at the end of the year.
Judging is now underway for the formal major challenge. But in addition to winning first, second or third place, there is an also an award for the Crowd Favourite in each age category. Entries with the most number of votes in each age category will win the Crowd Favourite award. Voting is open from the 12th of October to the 25th of October, 2015. So this is an opportunity to support and validate some young female scientist simply by watching some videos and liking the ones you think are best.
