They also interacted with sophisticated robots and learned real-world/business applications and other uses for robotics.

The DLL Storify of tweets that were generated by participants, staff, and volunteers who used hashtags = #BGCRobotExpo, #BGCNYC, @VolunteerBGCNY appears at the bottom of this page. Warning: the BGC staff and volunteers took a zillion great photos, so this Storify really gives viewers a sense of what the young girls were doing while they were learning and having fun ... :-)
As usual, this DLL Storify is merely a "firehose" draft, i.e., it includes tweets in chronological order without comment or classification ... Storyfies of other #DiversityInTech events are listed in the DLL Archives.
