Why STEM Matters

When girls participate in Girl Scout STEM programs, they benefit in four important ways:

  • STEM Interest—Girls are excited about STEM subjects and want to learn more about them.
  • STEM Confidence—Girls have confidence in their STEM skills and abilities.
  • STEM Competence—Girls think scientifically to solve problems.
  • STEM Value—Girls learn the importance and relevance of STEM to people and society.
