Vlog: Put More G.I.R.L.s on the Path to STEM-ccess with These Easy Tips



Every time a girl finds her love of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through Girl Scouts, there’s a dedicated volunteer by her side supporting and cheering her on. Volunteers are the building blocks of Girl Scouting, providing girls with the support they need to succeed. BUT that’s not to say that volunteers need to be STEM experts to engage girls in STEM.

Abby Whipker, senior manager of STEM programs at Girl Scouts of Greater New York, and Dr. Laura Terrill, STEM program manager at Girl Scout of Central Texas, have looked to their own networks to engage their girls in STEM. And through the generous support of the STEM Next Opportunity Fund, both women have served as STEM Next fellows over the past year, in the process building their councils’ capacity to deliver STEM programming to girls.

Check out our video for tips from Abby and Laura, including some unexpected ways that Girl Scout volunteers can use their resources wisely.
