Girl Scouts of Hawai`i continuously builds Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) into its programming throughout the year. Girls of all ages develop skills and qualities that promote STEM through its two K–12 programs: Leadership Journeys and The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting. These programs are based on the Girl Scout Leadership Experience and are centered on the three keys of leadership–Discover, Connect, and Take Action–which reinforce and support girls’ STEM experiences.

This summer we are offering a STEM program that is designed to help older girls engage with STEM in unique ways. This program is open to older Girl Scouts in grades nine through twelve, and it will give participants the opportunity to discover what they like about STEM, connect to other like-minded girls and mentors in the program, and take action to create their own path of success in STEM to make the world a better place.

We will hold our first meeting/workshop to kick-start this STEM program on Thursday, July 18, 2013, at Kiewit Infrastructure West Company. This will provide girls with a wonderful opportunity to see first-hand what STEM is all about and to talk to the very people who live and breathe STEM every day.  Please see below for more information.
