What is COVERAGE?
Competition of VEX Educational Robotics to Advance Girls Education (COVERAGE) is a project to inspire and support female middle and high school students to pursue STEM careers in West Virginia. Through attendance and participation in the robotics clubs and competitions, these students are predicted to become more knowledgeable and interested in STEM disciplines. COVERAGE was initially funded by the Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation. Before COVID-19 during academic year 2019-2020, we helped teachers to organize Girls Robotics Clubs in Kanawha, Fayette and Lincoln Counties. During COVID we continued our activities online through Team.
UPDATE: The in-person competition that was scheduled for October 8, 2021 has been postponed to Spring 2022. More information and a rescheduled date will be shared as soon as it is available.
