Girl Scouts of the USA has teamed up with the Girl Scouts of Central Illinois to test the NEW Family STEM Night Facilitator Guides by hosting a Family STEM Night.
We need troops (both single-level and multi-level) to volunteer their time to prepare for and host a Girl Scout Family STEM Night.
No STEM experience necessary – all Girl Scout volunteers can participate!
Why participate? Your troop will…
- Be the first to try new STEM activities.
- Help develop national STEM guidelines for Family STEM Nights by providing feedback.
- Earn a $50 Amazon gift card for their troop to support troop-related program expenses.
Each troop will be required to plan and hold ONE Family STEM Night between August 5, 2019 and October 25, 2019 and to participate in the pilot research and experience documentation.
