STEM Workshops To Be Held On Girl Scout Day At Chattanooga State Community College, Oct. 12

Wednesday, September 11, 2019
The Girl Scouts of the Southern Appalachians and Chattanooga State Community College are hosting a day of Girl Scout STEM workshops on the college campus, 4501 Amnicola Hwy. in Chattanooga, on Oct. 12.  Chattanooga State is hosting this Girl Scout Day on their campus with the help of faculty, students and industry partners.  

"The United States STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) gap is widening each year," officials said.  "In an article published by U.S.
News and World Report in August 2018, statistics were cited that projected the STEM gap in manufacturing alone would lead to 2 million unfilled jobs by 2025.  GSCSA and Chattanooga State are committed to reversing those statistics."

Girl Scout Cadettes through Ambassadors can explore STEM subjects and possible careers. The workshops will run from 9 a.m.-4:30p.m., with a free meal provided at a noon lunch break. 

Morning workshops include: Computer Aided Design (CAD); Robotics; Nuclear Science; Website Design; and Cyber Defense.

Afternoon workshops include: Coding; 3D Printing; Industrial Technology; Computer Technician; and Video Editing. 

All Girl Scouts attending this event will earn a Chattanooga State Community College patch. Girls attending Nuclear Science will earn Getting to Know Nuclear patch. Seniors attending Website Design will earn Website Design badge. Cadettes attending Coding will earn their Coding Basics badge. Cadettes attending Cyber Defense will complete their Cybersecurity Basics badge. Cadettes and Ambassadors attending Robotics will work on their Programming Robots badge.

Registration for this event is now open at GSCSA’s website.
