Launching Girls into Science-Technology-Engineering-Math
Girl Scouts have always done activities involving Science,
Technology, Engineering, and Math. Now they will be able to do even
more! GSK is launching STEM programs to give girls more opportunities
to do computer coding, build and program robotics, build an electronic
circuit, have fun with chemistry, and many other STEM projects.
To see how you can connect with GSK’s STEM activities, see the
descriptions below or find STEM events in the Activities Calendar.
Imagine yourself working in a STEM career! Join us and walk into
the world of STEM professionals. We’ll go where STEM happens to talk
with women professionals, tour the facilities, and do related hands-on
STEM activities. Each girl will receive a Spark event patch. How
many can you collect? Find Spark events in the Activities Calendar.
Need help with the Journeys? Troop leaders are encouraged to attend
the Journey Institute, an all-day intensive Journey training.
Learn their content, how to incorporate them into troop activities,
and participate in hands-on activities to take back to your troop.
At the It’s Your Planet-Love It! Journey Institute, we’ll
dive into the STEM-based Journeys: Wonders of Water and Get Moving!
Come learn the importance of STEM, hands-on experiments, and field
trip ideas to make the Journey come to life. Find Journey Institutes
in the Activities Calendar.
GEMS: Girls in Engineering, Math, and Science
Come experience Engineering, Math, & Science at local
universities. Girls will learn about careers in STEM, the scientific
method, science in daily life, and how much math and science are
connected. Did you know that even though women make up nearly 52% of
the workforce, they only make up 14% of the workforce in science and
technology careers? Remember, a girl's chances of going to college
raise exponentially by just visiting a college campus. Imagine the
benefits of experimenting in science and technology fields on a
college campus. Find GEMS in the Activities Calendar.
The MakerPlace brings science, technology, engineering and
mathematics to life through designing, building, tinkering and
inventing using ordinary, everyday items, gizmos, and gadgets. Find
more information on The MakerPlace webpage and The MakerPlace events
on the Activities Calendar.
