FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) aims to inspire girls to become science and technology leaders. This volunteer-led program is designed to inspire innovation, cultivate interest in STEM fields, and foster life skills (such as self-confidence, verbal communication, STEM competence, and team building).
GSNETX supports teams led by adult volunteer coaches and mentors,
who work together to design, build, and program a robot to do various
tasks. Teams explore a topic based on the challenge and then they
present their research about innovative solutions. FLL Explore Teams
earn awards through regional festivals.
Through their robotics team, Girl Scouts will learn valuable life and employment skills through ideation, solving problems, and overcoming obstacles. By persevering through challenges, girls will
find solutions to STEM problems and gain confidence in their abilities.
