Convent of the Visitation School in Mendota Heights, Minn., is home to the state's first all-girl robotics team, which won last year's Minnesota North Star Regional Championship. The school also has created a 4,000-square-foot facility dedicated to science, technology, engineering and math, complete with space for the team called the "Robettes." Students and educators say they hope the facility will inspire more girls to pursue STEM studies.
