STEM: Where Are the Women?

“We need events like GI-STEM: Girls in Science to show Girl Scouts that they are able to not only compete but excel in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) because they are talented, intelligent, creative, caring and courageous,” said Dr. Kimberly Bolig, Director of the Regional STEM Education Center at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania and former Girl Scout. “Not only will girls make their own lives better with their accomplishments, they will make this world better.”

GI-STEM: Girls in Science event connected over 300 Girl Scouts with extraordinary experiments, passionate professionals, and the tools and support to grow their confidence and interest in the STEM fields. Thanks to Bloomsburg University and Dr. Kimberly Bolig, the Girl Scouts arrived at the event with curiosities and left with hopes, dreams, and aspirations.
