Zonta's Girls Robotics Team Tests New Robotic Surgical System
The Zonta Club’s Girls Robotics team had the opportunity to earn $1500 for science and technology programs at the Boys & Girls Club, which hosts the robotics program. A group of elementary school-aged girls were given demonstrations of the new da Vinci Xi Surgical System at Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital. This robot allows doctors to perform minimally-invasive surgeries more precisely using 3D high-definition vision.
During a competition using the system, the girls practiced moving miniature rubber bands to test delicacy of the machine. The girls then competed using two different machines. For every rubber band they moved, the hospital donated $10 to the Boys and Girls Club.

Zonta International envisions a world in which women's rights are recognized as human rights
and every woman is able to achieve her full potential.
In such a world, women have access to all resources and are represented in decision making positions on an equal basis with men.
In such a world, no woman lives in fear of violence.
