This program will ignite girls’ natural curiosity and creativity while they build critical thinking and problem solving skills related to the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Ways girls (grades K-12) benefit in Girl Scouts:
- Girl Scout Robotics Series Program
- SUPER STEM Expo
- STEM Community Partners
- Are leaders
- Don’t give up when things are hard
- Try new things even when they may not be good at them
- Still try new things even if they are afraid of making mistakes
- Do important things
Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta offers girls the opportunity to participate on FIRST Lego League. Participation on Girl Scout teams allows girls to learn and gain practical skills in a non-competitive single gender environment. Girls have an opportunity to solve real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface. Each team is led by a registered Girl Scout adult volunteer and mentors that provide expertise in robot design and project specific topics. Each season Girl Scout teams in the Greater Atlanta area give back to their community by organizing an outreach or recruitment event for Girl Scouts and non-Girl Scouts.
Through FIRST Robotics, Girl Scouts are able to:
- Design, build, test and program robots
- Apply real-world math and science concepts
- Research challenges facing today’s scientists
- Learn critical thinking and presentation skills
- Develop problem-solving, organizational, and team-building skills
- Learn gracious professionalism through competitions and tournaments
Ways adults can support Girl Scout Robotics programs:
Who: Girls ages 9-18 in 2015 (Girl Scout Juniors – Ambassadors)
Girl Scout troops, individual Girl Scouts, and friends not currently Girl Scouts are encouraged to participate on teams (girls must be registered Girl Scouts to participate).
We offer 3 different levels of Robotics for every stage of Girl Scouts!
GSGATL also offers trainings and social events to build our Robotics
Community! Check the GSGATL calendar for more information.
