Launched in 2015, the Girl Scouts of Orange County STEM Consortium is OC’s first collaboration of its kind through which Girl Scouts works with leading STEM companies to bring vital STEM experiences to girls across Orange County.
The inaugural consortium developed Orange County’s first Girl Scout STEM Badge-- My STEM Life-- for Girl Scout Cadettes in grades 6-8. View the press release here.
This year’s STEM Consortium, see logos below for current members, has broadened its impact through creation of a brand new badge for Girl Scout Juniors in grades 4-5 - STEMsational ME! View the press release here.
Girls in OC embrace STEM educational opportunities, recognizing its importance for their future success. OC STEM businesses achieve their growth objectives through girls seeing themselves in STEM careers and have the courage and confidence to pursue their dreams.
Together, the STEM Consortium and the GSOC will bring high quality and diverse STEM program experiences to the more than 21,000 Girl Scouts in Orange County, demonstrating STEM's relevancy to the girls' interests. We will provide the support and training necessary for Girl Scout troop leaders and other adult volunteers to deliver these programs within the troop setting. In doing so, we intend to help close the STEM gender gap.
