Medusa Is Coming!

Hello, and thank you for checking out Girl Gang's newsletter and blog! This addition features the latest news from February-Early March . Our biggest event this robot refinement. Keep reading for more information.

February is described by many as the lowest point of the year, but Girl Gang is making the most of it! We are busy working on improving our robot so it is ready for the contest... which is coming soon! The Kokomo District Event is March 4... we are looking forward to competing! But in order to compete, first we must perfect our skills...

This month, we have been working on pneumatics. For those of you not familiar with the term, pneumatics is a branch of engineering and science that uses pressurized air or gas to power systems or perform functions. Check out the picture above for a good look at a pneumatic system!

We have also made some structural improvements to our robot. These new structures will support the robot as a whole, in addition to completing specific tasks. It's the little details that make the robot succeed! As a reminder to those who didn't read last month's newsletter, our robot is named Medusa! Please check out our new promo video here.

Our fundraiser is still ongoing! We haven't quite reached the level of funds we were hoping to gain yet, so your support is greatly appreciated! To find fundraiser information, click on the notification in the top left OR look through the past news articles. Be sure to check the comments to see if the article is up to date.

Lastly, we would love to see traffic on the Girl Gang website increase this month! Please share it with your friends, family, and anyone else who would be interested. If you know a STEM-loving kid or a teacher looking for STEM activities for the classroom, please encourage them to check out our NEW kids page! We would like to see comments or contact questions from viewers, so if you have anything to say, please let us know!

That's all for this month! As always, we would LOVE to hear from you! Leave us a comment below, reach us with the contact page, or use our new "Ask Us" feature. We look forward to hearing from you! Be on the look out for the next newsletter or updates! Thank you for reading February's edition of the Girl Gang newsletter!
