INDIANAPOLIS -

Twenty teams made up of all-female students and mentors will take part this weekend in the IndyRAGE robotics competition. Teams from Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and Kentucky will take part in the event aimed at sparking interest among women in STEM fields.

The competition involves a game called STEAMWORKS, which features robots shooting five-inch whiffle balls into a 21-inch diameter goal. Teams can also score points by having robots place a gear-shaped game piece onto a flexible peg, then moving them onto another assembly. A final challenge involves robots climbing a rope.

The IndyRAGE competition will also feature discussion panels on diversity, inclusion and breaking down barriers. RAGE stands for Raising Awareness for Girls in Engineering.
