Partnership with VFW: Girl Scouts of Colorado is working on a partnership with the Veteran of Foreign Wars. If you are already collaborating with a local VFW, please let your Membership Manager know. Watch for more information about this potential partner!

A new study has been released from the Girl Scout Research Institute; Generation STEM: What Girls Say about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. This study shows that 74 percent of teen girls are interested in STEM subjects and the general field of study. Further, a high 82 percent of girls see themselves as "smart enough to have a career in STEM." And yet, few girls consider it their number-one career option: 81 percent of girls interested in STEM are interested in pursuing STEM careers, but only 13 percent say it's their first choice.
