STEM

Girls are amazing innovators. Seriously, they’ve been exploring, inventing, and revolutionizing things (like the English language) for generations. And when you combine their innovative skills with a desire to help others, you get the potential for some awesome scientific breakthroughs and inventions. And we want to be a part of that!

Explore all of the exciting STEM initiatives offered at Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma, and don’t forget to check the latest program guide and activities calendar for dates.

STEM Strategic Plan

STEM Strategic Plan

Developed by our STEM Advisory Committee, our STEM Strategic Plan sets out a three-year strategy based on a vision where all Girl Scouts are inspired and empowered to excel in STEM fields of study and succeed in 21st-century careers as leaders and trailblazers. It represents an urgent call to action for a community-wide collaboration with girls, families, educators, and employers – a guide for the organization as it collectively charts a course for each and every girls’ success.

STEM Outcomes

STEM Outcomes

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math: STEM pervades every aspect of our society, and is the engine of our future. Girl Scouts is committed to reducing the STEM gap by making sure girls feel supported and confident in exploring these exciting and important fields, despite the societal pressure, stereotypes, and obstacles they may encounter.

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

·  STEM Interest—Girls are excited about STEM subjects and want to learn more about them.

·  STEM Confidence—Girls have confidence in their STEM skills and abilities.

·  STEM Competence—Girls think scientifically to solve problems.

·  STEM Value—Girls learn the importance and relevance of STEM to people and society.

The goal of these outcomes is simple: to let girls know that STEM is for them. Each of these outcomes builds resilience and persistence in girls and helps them form life-long identities as scientists, innovators, engineers, and mathematicians.  Learn more about how these STEM outcomes matter.

STEM Program Kits

STEM Program Kits

A STEM Kit is a detailed curriculum box that your Girl Scout troop can use to expand your Girl Scout experience. Each kit contains a program guide or instructions, and permanent supplies. Program Kits can be specific to a Girl Scout program level or can be multilevel. Each Program Kit is different. Refer to the Program Kit you are interested in for details.

GSEOK’s STEM kits are available to borrow at no cost to leaders and can be delivered to any council office for pickup. Checkout information coming soon!

Oklahoma Forestry Services has Tree Cookie Trunks that troops can utilize with Girl Scout Journeys and badges that focus on STEM, the outdoors, and advocacy.
