Providing STEM education to 24,000 girls in MD

by Girl Scouts of Central Maryland, Inc. Vetted since 2015


To be competitive in the global marketplace, the U.S. will need 1 million more STEM professionals than it's on track to produce. Reports show that STEM occupations are growing at double the rate of other professions, and Girl Scouts is committed to filling the STEM workforce pipeline. A Girl Scout Research Institute study found that 74% of girls say they're interested in STEM, but only 13% of interested girls say a STEM career is their first choice. Help us build the STEM pipeline by donating!

To be competitive in the global market, over the next decade the U.S. will need an astounding 1 million more STEM professionals than it's on track to produce. Of the current STEM professionals, women hold less than 25 percent of STEM jobs. Only 1 out of 3 environmental engineers and chemists, 1 in 4 computer scientists, 1 in 5 industrial engineers, 1 in 10 physicists and electrical engineers, and less than 8% of mechanical engineers are women.


Girl Scouts has made a pledge to put 2.5 million girls nationally through our hands-on STEM programs by 2025. We are the foremost experts in preparing the next generation of female STEM leaders. Girl Scouts are almost twice as likely as non-Girl Scouts to participate in STEM activities, and 77% of girls say that they are considering a career in technology because of Girl Scouts. Our program has more than 35 STEM badges that challenge girls to stretch their STEM skills.

Long-Term Impact

Girl Scouts of Central Maryland serves 24,000 girls in the Baltimore area through programs like Techbridge, First LEGO League, STEM is Fun, Chemistry in the Kitchen, Science Wonders, and our annual STEAM Festival. Your gift will enable us to encourage 24,000 girls to consider careers in STEM fields.
