STEM Robotics Series Program

Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta Girl Scout offers Girl Scouts Juniors the opportunity to participate on FIRST Lego League. Participation on Girl Scout teams allows girls to learn and gain practical skills in a non-competitive single gender environment. Girls have an opportunity to solve real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface. Each team is led by a registered Girl Scout adult volunteer and mentors that provide expertise in robot design and project specific topics. Each season Girl Scout teams in the Greater Atlanta area give back to their community by organizing an outreach or recruitment event for Girl Scouts and non-Girl Scouts.

Through FIRST Robotics, Girl Scouts are able to:
Design, build, test and program robots
Apply real-world math and science concepts
Research challenges facing today’s scientists
Learn critical thinking and presentation skills
Develop problem-solving, organizational, and team-building skills
Learn gracious professionalism through competitions and tournaments
