MISSION CRITICAL STEM CAREERS: SECURING THE PIPELINE
General Information: The Girl Scouts STEM Carnival provides the participants the opportunity to attend STEM workshops/exhibits. Each students will have up to 30 minutes to visit each of the exhibits. The purpose of the STEM Carnival is to expose girls to different types of STEM careers with hands on activities, and workshops/exhibits with STEM professionals. Each girl will receive a Patriots STEM Carnival Patch at the Carnival. Then, Patriots will take a survey on the different careers the girls would like to have, and after the STEM Carnival we will host workshops that will align with Girl Scouts badge requirement, and invite the girls to attend.
Program: This program will expose students to the different types of STEM careers that they may want to major in.
