Girl Scouts of Colorado extends big thanks to Victoria Bohannon-Pea, a project manager at Arrow Electronics and Angelica Roman, a marketing manager at deepwatch, for participating in our Meet an Expert program on January 13, 2021. More than 80 Girl Scouts of all ages participated in the webinar live to learn about working in the robotics industry. You can now watch and listen to this webinar on the GSCO YouTube channel. Don’t forget to check out our whole Meet an Expert playlist while you’re there!
In addition to speaking with the girls about their careers, Victoria and Anjelica presented their work on a robotic dragon! Arrow Electronics is developing a robotic dragon to fulfill the wish of a young girl as part of the Make a Wish program. They showed girls videos and photos from the development of the dragon and explained how they’ve been building it to be as lifelike as possible. The dragon will be completed and delivered to its owner in spring 2021.
After learning all about the dragon, Girl Scouts had an opportunity to ask Victoria and Angelica questions life. The girls asked about their education and the other projects they get to work on. We learned that the dragon responds to touch, can walk around, and doesn’t like kale! Victoria’s last piece of advice for any girls interested in a career in robotics is to learn coding. Luckily, there are Coding for Good badges for every Girl Scout level!
