The Super STEM Expo is a Girl Scout friendly showcase of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, robots, innovation, creativity and resourcefulness packed in one day. We are honored to be hosting Dorothy (Dottie) Metcalf-Lindenburger, a former member of the NASA Astronaut Corps and science advocate. Girl Scouts and their families will be able to earn STEM badges through a variety of interactive hands-on experiences from exhibitors like Zoo Atlanta, Emory University, Team Eve Robotics Team, Delta Air Lines, Kid Video Connection, Challenge Island, Girls Who Code, Clarivate and more! We’re also holding four different career panels focusing on women in engineering and design, women in leadership, women of Delta Airlines, and an exclusive talk with Dottie. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity you don’t want to miss!

Lego Robotics

Lego Robotics

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

We offer 3 different levels of Robotics for every stage of Girl Scouts!
