FIRST ® Awards Grant to GSMW for Lego Teams
In 2017, GSMW sponsored an all-girl Lego team that qualified and competed in the World Festival.
This year, we are one of only seventeen groups from across North America that has received a grant from FIRST®. This grant will support 15 LEGO Robotics teams (5-Junior and 10-FIRST® League teams) for up to 120 Girl Scouts in grades K-8 council-wide. Our track record reaching girls, STEM programming strength and results, along with value-added activities for our members i.e., an Expo and first-ever LEGO camp in 2018 led to earning this prestigious grant from among the 291 organizations that applied.
STEM-experienced volunteers will mentor a team (up to 10 girls) to develop critical thinking and technical skills while building and coding a robot solution for a real-world challenge.
