Don't miss Dr. Archand's STEMinist session on Aug. 20!
Join us on the 2nd Saturday of each month as we participate
in virtual, hands-on, enriching, and age-appropriate STEM activities!
Each program session is led by an Everyday Superhero—a woman working
in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM).
Each month, our Everyday Superheroes will share their story and do
STEM with Girl Scouts—making connections to real world problems and
solutions. Plus, all sessions are strategically aligned to STEM badges.
Girl Scouts may attend individually or as a troop by signing up for
a program pass! And, stateside Girl Scouts are invited to join us by
registering for a program pass as well.
Troops and Overseas Committees that bulk
register 10 or more girls receive a per girl discount and an
autographed copy of STEMinist host, Erin Twamley’s book, Everyday
Superheroes: Women in STEM Careers.
