Girl Scouts' approach to STEM is unique because:
G.I.R.L. Extravaganza – An annual overnight experience the girls can share with their families. During the day participants get to explore our STEM fair where experts share hands-on activities in everything from chemistry, biology, and physics to 3D printing, coding, and robotics via demonstration booths. During the evening families get to learn about astronomy and participate in traditional Girl Scouts activities like making SWAPS, sing-alongs, and S’mores.
STEM Saturdays – A smaller version of G.I.R.L. Extravaganza for individual regions or troops held for a half day on Saturdays.
Innovate and Create – A week long summer camp that bridges art, design, engineering, and technology. Girls learn about electricity, simple circuits, 3-D printing, animation, video game design, computer programming, and electronic textiles. This camp serves as the perfect environment to experiment and learn through making.
PNM Venture Days: Dare to Explore – A series program where girls can explore our new STEM badges. These workshops are for girls who are interested in earning their STEM badges through experimentation, while taking field trips and meeting real women scientists. This series is generously funded by PNM.
My 3 Sisters: Part 2 STEM – A series program focused on bringing more STEM to Native American girls in New Mexico through maker activities. These activities include engineering and design concepts through combining low-tech and high-tech making activities. This series is generously funded by Verizon.
