Learn how to build STEM superstars at volunteer workshop

Hey Troop Leaders! Want to inspire the next generation of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) superstars? Register now for the “SciGirls STEM Superstars” Workshop on Saturday, Nov. 19 at the Cranberry Marriott North in Cranberry Township.

SciGirls is a PBS program that combines TV, digital content and hands-on activities to change the way girls think about STEM. Using SciGirls resources and practices, you can inspire your Scouts to explore STEM learning and career paths.

At this workshop, a certified trainer will share SciGirls’ best practices for encouraging girls around STEM.   You’ll learn how to create a gender equitable learning environment, be a great STEM role model, and how to lead simple but standards-based STEM activities with your troop!

The event is $15 per person. Register now!

Another STEM-tastic resource!

Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) and Netflix have joined forces to help girls explore the fun and challenges of STEM. Centered on Project Mc², a Netflix original series from MGA Entertainment Inc., the collaboration takes STEM beyond the small screen with hands-on experiences for Girl Scout troops and the debut of a STEM Superstars Guide(PDF), an online resource that encourages Girl Scouts to discover how science, technology, engineering and math matters to them.
