The Girl Scout Council of Greater Atlanta presents Girl Scout Engineers!
Description: Connect with others as we present a program designed by the Society of Women Engineers to help girls discover the world of science exploration! Women in engineering careers will lead girls in a variety of hands-on science activities. Meet women engaged in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programs and get a chance to learn about exciting science careers. Lunch will be provided to all registered participants.
Volunteers: We are looking for a dozen female engineers to introduce 100 “future engineers” to the world of engineering. This is a popular girl scout program and this year we have expanded the age groups and activities.

Program Level: Girl Scout Junior (Gr 4-5), Girl Scout Cadette (Gr 6-8)
