Girl Scouts Here We Go!

We are thrilled the Girl Scouts have decided to take an active roll in encouraging girls to pursue STEM learning. More and more jobs are requiring at least some coding experience and the early students are exposed to coding the more comfortable they are with it. Women are still underrepresented in STEM jobs and we aim to change that by introducing STEM lessons to girls at a young age so they see these jobs as a viable option. Girl Scouts provide a unique platform to expose girls to STEM in a comfortable, friendly environment and we couldn’t be more honored to help them in their journey.

According to the Girl Scout’s official announcement, “The new Girl Scout programming builds girls’ skills and encourages their interest in STEM and environmental conservation from an early age, increasing their confidence in these areas—in an all-girl environment where they feel
