Girl Scouts Prepare for STEM Careers
Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas, partnering with Texas Instruments, are getting hands-on with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) at the High School College Journey program this week at UT Dallas.
The Girl Scout Research Institute shows that 74 percent of teen girls are interested in STEM subjects, while 13 percent of girls interested in STEM say it is their first choice as a career option.
Girl Scouts leaders hope to increase these numbers by giving participants college preparation as well as experience in male-dominated STEM industries. They will explore biomedicine, chemistry, architecture, and more, holding a human heart and making fireworks along the way.
The camp is held from July 12-17.
