Girls ♥ STEM

On Valentine's Day, 2012, we brought together female leaders in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to discuss our groundbreaking Generation STEM research report. See the discussion held at The New York Academy of Sciences through our liveblog http://blog.girlscouts.org/2012/02/girls-love-stem-live-blog.html or follow our Girl Scout digital correspondents on Twitter @girlscouts (#Girls<3STEM).

Read the Report

"Generation STEM: What Girls Say about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math" is a research report from the Girl Scout Research Institute released in February 2012. The report examines interest and engagement in the subjects and fields of STEM, from the voices of 1,000 girls nationwide, ages 8-18. Girls are interested in STEM fields and aspire to STEM careers the study shows, but need more exposure and adult support to carry this interest into the future. Find out more information about the report, including tip sheets for parents and girls.
