Amazon and Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) have partnered to develop customized in-person and video tours of Amazon fulfillment centers. Girl Scout programming has long introduced girls to critical STEM concepts such as algorithms, computer coding, robotics, and engineering. Now, Girl Scouts will have the opportunity to see these concepts come to life as Amazon employees work side by side with robots in fulfillment centers to pack and ship customer orders. By having the opportunity to meet and/or see female employees in STEM roles at Amazon, girls will leave the tour imagining how they can build the future with STEM.
Amazon is also providing grants to 23 select Girl Scout councils to help even more Girl Scouts take part in this unique, real-world STEM experience. Thanks to Amazon’s support, the video tour will be available on Girl Scouts at Home Activity Zone in spring 2022, and the in-person tour will be available at select fulfillment centers around the country in winter 2022. Girl Scouts attending the tours may also have an opportunity to receive a free, limited-edition patch.
