Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri encourages girls to become science and technology leaders through participation in the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and SeaPerch Robotics programs. Each team member gains hands-on STEM experience along with problem-solving, teamwork and other important life skills. Teams follow an innovative curriculum that combines basic engineering and science concepts with an exciting season theme, then show off what they have learned at an end-of-season event.
No previous experience is necessary for our participants or coaches. If you have an interest in learning how to build and program, this is an amazing opportunity for you! Teams are led by adult volunteer coaches and mentors. Teams have an opportunity to compete at local and regional tournaments and win prizes.
FIRST LEGO League (FLL) introduces STEM to kids in grades K-8th through fun, exciting hands-on learning. Participants gain real-world problem-solving experiences through a guided, global robotics program, helping today’s students build a better future together.
FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST Robotics Competition teams learn to think like engineers. Teams design, build, and code robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams.
SeaPerch is an underwater robotics program that enables teachers and students to build an ROV in an in-school or out-of-school setting. Girls follow an innovative curriculum that combines basic engineering and science concepts with an exciting marine engineering theme, then construct the ROV from a kit containing low-cost, easily accessible parts. Participating girls gain hands-on STEM experience along with problem-solving, teamwork and other important life skills.
