STEM Journey

Outdoor STEM | Think Like a Citizen Scientist
Girls participate in interactive activities to learn how scientists solve problems using the scientific method. Girls practice observation, collect data, and complete a citizen science project. Then they create their Take Action project. 

Registration is now open for events through June 2019. Be on the lookout for big events that give girls opportunities to travel and meet other Girl Scouts from all over the Desert Southwest. Please make sure to submit all program registrations to info@gsdsw.org.

STEM Badges

Computer Science | Cybersecurity: Girls learn how computers and the internet work and apply the concepts of safety and protection to everyday technology.

Computer Science | Coding for Good: Girls find out how to create computer programs, games, and apps that solve problems and help others. There is an “unplugged” version of this badge as well as a “plugged” version that allows girls to do activities online.

Space Science: Girls learn all about the Solar System and our place in it. Just like real scientists and astronauts, girls explore, observe, and investigate the Sun, Moon, and stars and discover that space is bigger and even more exciting than they imagined.
