Since 1912, girls have explored, developed, and sharpened their science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills through Girl Scouting. Girls lead their own adventures, team up with others, and get busy with hands-on STEM activities of their choosing. Guided by supportive adults and peers, girls discover their talents and grow by taking healthy risks in a safe and supportive all-girl setting. Today, Girl Scouts is, as it always has been, the organization best positioned to help girls develop important STEM competencies they need to become the next generation of female leaders – and to change the world in big and small ways!

When girls participate in Girl Scout STEM programs, girls benefit in four important ways:

Girl Scout Robotics

Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta sponsors Girl Scout Teams through FIRST Lego League. Participation on Girl Scout teams allows girls to earn their Robotics series of badges, learn and gain practical robotics skills, and be inspired to make the world a better place! 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.

New teams are formed each fall. Click if your Girl Scout is interested in joining an existing team, or if you are interested in organizing a new team.
