“ To me, the thorn of the class was that, at the beginning I thought I wouldn’t succeed, but at the end the rose was that yes I was able to program, build, and give orders to the robot!”
Nicaraguan Student – Summer of 2017

young women fall in love with robotics

What We Believe

We believe that empowering girls and young women to pursue STEM careers begins in the classroom, and this age is an impressionable time in life recognized as a turning point.

While women constitute almost 50% of the labor market, there are only 28% of women in STEM fields as opposed to 72% of men.

Out of all female doctorate graduates in the fields of science and engineering, 86% are white or Asian. Fewer than 4% are Latinas, and less than 3% are black. The same can be observed in the job market as well. Only 1 out of 20 employed scientists and engineers are black women or Latinas.

The Community Bots program “has been awesome, The Bomb!, as they say in Spain…By empowering girls, we offer them many possibilities. Education and inclusion are fundamental.”

Duke Buchan, United States Ambassador to Spain

In the summer of 2019, we partnered with the United States Embassy Madrid and the Fundación Secretariado Gitano (FSG) to bring our program to La Línea de Concepción in Spain.

FSG is an intercultural social organization that provides services for the development of the Roma community in Spain and in Europe. The group of middle and high school girls for our program was composed of Gitano community members from around La Linea. We also trained teachers from various technical schools in the area.
