GSCM’s annual Women in STEAM Festival bringing together Girl Scouts and professionals from across a variety of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) fields. Female professionals highlight careers in robotics, graphic design, biology, cosmetics, and architecture and more through hands-on workshops for girls and parents.
Girl Scouts love STEM!
At Girl Scouts, we’re committed to increasing girls’ involvement in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and ensuring that every girl has opportunities to explore and build potential career paths in these important fields.
Whether they’re discovering the chemistry of their favorite foods, becoming math whizzes, or going to space camp, girls are moving forward into the future. Girl Scouts recognizes that the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) professional of tomorrow is different from the STEM professional of yesterday.
The Girl Scout effect is proven: in the U.S., 90 percent of female astronauts, 80 percent of female tech leaders are Girl Scout alumna.
Nationally, Girl Scouts supports STEM by adding new STEM badges and Journeys around space science, robotics, environmental science, engineering, and computer programming.
Girl Scouts of Central Maryland engages girls in STEM through a number of events and activities throughout the year including:
Girls STEAM Ahead
Additonal events can be found on the events calendar including programs revolving around the new badges! Girls can now explore space science, robotics, cybersecurity, mechanical engineering, and computer programming through a number of new badges and journeys from GSUSA.
