Girls are natural-born scientists! They look at the world
around them with inquisitive eyes, experiment and push boundaries, and
learn as they go. Research confirms that girls are keenly interested
in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) — and that girls
excel at it! Yet, for a variety of reasons, girls often don’t pursue
STEM, starting as early as elementary school.
But we can change that. At Girl Scouts, we introduce girls of every
age to STEM to help them see how they can actually improve the
world—whether they're discovering how a car's engine runs,
experimenting with kitchen chemistry, or caring for animals. Our
unique, "fun with purpose" curriculum inspires girls to
embrace and celebrate scientific discovery in their everyday lives.
