Today more girls are showing interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fields and STEM-based activities. But despite this growing curiosity, girls still are not choosing medicine, science, technology and engineering as their number one career path.
Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines has prioritized STEM in an effort to help girls bridge the existing gender gap that within these male-dominant career fields and provides opportunities for girls to enhance their exposure to and deepen their engagement in STEM.
