TED conferences bring together leaders from various disciplines and locations around the globe to share Ideas Worth Spreading. In December 2010, the first TEDWomen conference focused on the question: How are women and girls reshaping the future?

Research in Motion (RIM) produced a video highlighting our work in youth outreach to be shown at the conference. The video tells our story of how we inspire and engage girls in science and engineering through robotics workshops. By incorporating creativity into the workshops and allowing the girls to decide on the type of challenge they want to try to solve, the girls are able to make richer connections to their work. Our goal is to spark an interest in designing technology so that the girls leave with new ideas about how they can design their futures.

The video is also posted on our YouTube channel.
