In order to achieve the mission of delivering hands on, innovative STEM programming, we have recruited some of the top industry and academic leaders to partner with us to plan and implement progressive programming. Here are a few examples of current partnerships:
Cookie Box Creations
Girls grow in special skills as they address the challenges of structural engineering! Cookie Box Creations teams girls with women architects and engineers, in a design contest to turn empty GS cookie boxes into free-standing structures. This year’s competition is partially funded through by HKS. For more information, visit www.gsnetx.org/cookieBox
Girl Scout Juniors will be energized as they learn about kinetic and potential energy all around us. Girls will come unplugged in Spring 2012 as they understand their energy footprint and how they do their own energy audit. Funding for these one day workshops is provided through a GSUSA grant from Ingersoll Rand/Train. For more information, visit www.gsnetx.org/getmoving
Through a grant from AT&T Foundation, we will pique the interest of underserved high school girls via a variety of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) career activities and encourage them to pursue those interests in the future. For more information, visit www.gsnetx.org/imagiNation
College Journey: a part of Teaming for Tomorrow
Girls can envision themselves becoming future STEM professionals as they enjoy a week of hands on career exploration on a local college campus. Visit www.gsnetx.org/collegejourney
