Special Event: Geek is Glam STEM Expo

FAQsRegistration opens on August 22.

Have you ever wondered, “How does that work?” or thought to yourself, “I could build that!” Explore, experience and experiment, not for a grade, but for fun! Meet talented women and experience exciting opportunities in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Discover how you can make a difference in the world. At Geek is Glam, you’ll enjoy:

  • Interactive Workshops
  • Amazing Demonstrations
  • Hands-on Exhibits
  • Educational Career Panels
  • Lunch in a College Dining Hall

This is a girl-only event. We are looking for adults to volunteer with us for the day! If you would like to be a part of this great event, please contact Tammy Breen at TBreen@gscwm.org. Volunteers are needed to assist in workshops, run registration, direct girls, be hall monitors and various other opportunities. All volunteers must be a registered member of Girl Scouts and have an active CORI on file with GSCWM and understand you will not be with your troop or daughter for the day. Plus, you’ll go home with an event t-shirt and bag and other give-aways.
