Girls Go Techbridge

Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri offers five, fun, hands-on engineering programs-in-a-box to its members.

Program Goals:

  • Introduce engaging science and engineering hands-on activities to girls to develop technical skills and increase girls' confidence levels
  • Increase girls' knowledge of and interest in science and engineering careers through career activities and role models
  • Build leaders' confidence in leading and bringing science and engineering activities to their girls
  • Provide resources to families to help encourage girls in science and engineering
Engineering programs-in-a-box

Design Time
Survival skills meet science as girl's design water filters, wind-powered cranks, a message-carrying car and safe shelter for a make-believe camping trip in Yellowstone National Park. After an earthquake strikes the fictional campground, electrical power, food and water source are unavailable. Girls will you get out of this predicament by applying their engineering, problem-solving and design savvy.

Engineers to the Rescue
Girl Scout leadership programs enhance girls' knowledge in areas of relationship building, effective communication and self-expression.

ThrillBuilders
Welcome to a crazy carnival of your troop's creation. Explore simple machines all around. Build a merry-go-round, a bean-bag toss and a race car. Levers, pulleys, screws and gears abound as girls engineer the ultimate playground.

Engineer Your Journey

Girl Scouts of the USA has worked in collaboration with Techbridge to offer three ways to Engineer Your Journey.

We invite you to use a Journey Planner to infuse your Girl Scout Leadership Experience with the engineering flair of the accompanying Girls Go Techbridge program-in-a-box.

These planners offer tips to integrate hands-on engineering activities into Journeys for Girl Scout Juniors and Seniors.

Why Role Models Matter

Research shows that role models are important for expanding career options and exposing girls to STEM careers. Through a partnership with Girls Go Techbridge, Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri now offers STEM Role Model Training. Let us know how we can bring this training to your business, school or organization.

Exciting news! Our Role Models Matter toolkit now has 4 new modules!
