A brighter future for us all can be a reality, thanks to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
Research shows that girls are keenly interested in STEM and excel at it. Yet, for a variety of reasons, girls often don’t pursue STEM—starting as early as elementary school.
Girl Scouts lets your girl see that STEM can help her make the world a better place! When girls participate in focused STEM programs, they are more interested in STEM and careers in tech—including app development, robotics, coding, and cybersecurity—and they:
Become better problem-solvers and critical thinkers (OR learn to think scientifically to solve problems)
Have confidence in their STEM skills and abilities
Get excited about STEM subjects and want to learn more about them
Learn the importance and relevance of STEM to people and society and options for their own career paths
