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.
