PORTLAND, Ore.-- Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington hosts first-ever Stemapalooza.

Girls will engage with STEM experts, explore STEM careers and experience live webinar panels, science demonstrations, and self-guided activities.

STEMapalooza is generously sponsored by First Tech Federal Credit Union.

STEMapalooza is a two-day virtual Science, Technology, Engineering and Math expo.

Starting November 14-15th, girls will engage with STEM experts, explore STEM careers and experience live webinar panels, science demonstrations, and self-guided activities. 

The Girl Scout STEM programs are designed to introduce Girl Scouts of every age to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and bridge the gender gap with progression-based, multi-year STEM experiences such as Girl Scouts’ new STEM Career Exploration badges.

Through STEMapalooza, Girl Scouts in grades 2-8 will be able to complete steps toward these new badges as they connect with STEM professionals, learn about what they do, and discover their pathway to STEM careers.

“At GSOSW, it is so important for us to create STEM opportunities for girls where they can see themselves represented in a field that they have been told is traditionally not for them, we hope to inspire girls through these opportunities to step outside of their comfort zones to try something new, so they can cultivate the skills to become the STEM leaders of tomorrow, ”said Tessa Crosby, Program Manager for Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington.

STEMapalooza is a virtual expo, open to all girls grades K-12. Preregistration was required by November 12 to access STEMapalooza virtual event sessions. The $7.50 registration fee included access to all STEMapalooza virtual events including panels, live science demonstrations, and self-guided activities; a STEMapalooza activity packet and an exclusive STEMapalooza fun patch.

To obtain access to STEMapalooza virtual events or to arrange virtual interviews, interested media should contact sshipe@girlscoutsosw.org
