Doyenne Inspiration


Inviting all young women interested in learning more about the FIRST Robotics Competition!

Doyenne Inspiration is about empowering young women through the FIRST Robotics Competition to become engineers, computer programmers, and STEM leaders. This event will give young women the opportunity to learn more about engineering through a hands-on, female-focused event. Ideally, we strive to create a family of young women supporting other women in this male-dominated field. All high-school young women are invited to participate.  Register today!
