Girl Scouts introduces girls of every age to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) experiences relevant to everyday life. Whether they're discovering how a car's engine runs, how to manage finances, or exploring careers in STEM fields, girls are fast-forwarding into the future!
Many of the badges and Journey activities are STEM focused. Check out the Program Resource Guide for more GSOFCT programs. Visit the GSUSA STEM Program page to learn more.

Engineers to the Rescue
We are proud to continue our successful robotics and pre-robotics programs in collaboration with FIRST Robotics. Junior FIRST LEGO League serves girls ages 6-9. Teams of six girls research a topic, build a model based on their research, and present their work at an Expo. FIRST LEGO League, for teams of six to ten girls ages 9-14, is a robotics program in which teams research a topic, then build and program a robot to perform tasks related to that topic. The season runs from Sept 1 through mid-December, and culminates in tournaments across the state in which teams present their research to reviewers and compete for points on the robotics playing field. Girl Scouts of CT has limited grant funding to support teams by providing all the necessary equipment and registration fees.
