Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) and Discovery Education today announced Girls Get STEM: Unleash Your Inner Scientist – a national initiative to spark girls’ interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). The program will provide educators, Girl Scout troop leaders, and families with standards-aligned curriculum aimed at addressing gender equity in STEM education through a series of girl-led, girl-tested and girl-approved resources for students in grades 2-5.
The initiative launches with the Unleash Your Citizen Scientist Virtual Field Trip, premiering on Thursday, October 18, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. ET/10:00 a.m. PT, and will offer students and their teachers a digital view of the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas' STEM-focused adventure camp. Educators, parents and students are welcomed to register for the virtual event here.
Resources to expand STEM opportunities and create a more equitable future are available at no cost at GirlsLeadSTEM.com; they will also be available through Discovery Education Streaming. For more information, visit discoveryeducation.com.
