Did you know? In the United States, 74% of girls express interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math in middle school. By high school, only 0.3% girls plan to major in Computer Science—Girl Scouts is on a mission to change that (Source)!
At Girl Scouts of Northern California, STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) encompasses everything from protecting California’s beloved natural resources, to building robots with NASA. In our diverse set of STEM programs, girls develop leadership abilities and technical skills that not only spark an invested interest in science and technology, but also set them up for future success.
