Girl Scouts of Central MD-Think Like a Scientist
 
 
 
GSCM is concerned with relevant issues that impact a girl’s journey into adulthood. These include activities that increase a girl’s readiness for and opportunities to: be successful in school; aspire to pursue rewarding careers; maintain productive interpersonal relationships with a foundation of strong self-image; and respect and appreciation for the outdoors/ecosystem and its resources. GSCM delivers on its mission through the provision of research-based programs in a variety of venues, using experiential learning techniques and producing impact in girls in K-12 in the national priority areas of STEM education/career aspirations, the outdoors, life skills and entrepreneurship. The STEM program developer will help promote STEM gender equity and provide access to girls who otherwise would not be exposed to high quality STEM opportunities. This position will refine curriculum, evaluation processes, resources and systems necessary for sustained implementation of STEM programs in underserved communities. Identification of funding sources to sustain the program will also be completed by the STEM VISTA, with development of letters of inquiry. Parent engagement will play a larger role in year 2, and the VISTA member will design parent materials, and venues for parent engagement in encouraging their daughters to pursue STEM academics and careers.
