Girls are natural-born scientists! They look at the world around them with inquisitive eyes, experiment and push boundaries, and learn as they go.
However, by the time girls reach high school, despite the fact that girls match or surpass boys’ aptitude, they are much less likely to take advanced placement physics or computer science exams.
That’s why we’re committed to showing girls at every age how they can use science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to make the world a better place.
Our focus on STEM gives girls the opportunity to explore these fields in a supportive, all girl environment. Every year, we provide nearly 12,000 girls with hands-on experiences in STEM programming. Girls are working in teams to understand robotics, learning how they can change the world through code, discovering the chemistry of their favorite foods, and meeting professional women in STEM fields. We call it “fun with a purpose.”
Girls don’t have to be a science whiz or computer expert to get excited about STEM. Our STEM events are for everyone! Try one for yourself!

Girl Scouts in STEM is powered by GE Healthcare
GE Healthcare is a presenting sponsor of GSWISE's Girl Scouts in STEM initiative. Our teams collaborated to build a custom platform to connect GE Healthcare's local community engagement strategy aligned with STEM and education to our Girl Scouts and STEM programming to build the next generation of women leaders in STEM. Our partnership includes involvement with hands-on learning experiences in mechanical engineering, coding, robotics, and outdoor STEM activities in the Girl Scout Camp environment.
