NEW MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains


A national initiative to reduce the gender gap in STEM fields by bringing 2.5 million girls into the STEM pipeline over the next eight years was announced by the Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) in 2017. “Girl Scouts has the largest pipeline of future female leaders available, and no place is this more important than in STEM fields,” said GSUSA CEO, Sylvia Acevedo, as she pledged to thousands of business leaders, “By working with individuals and companies that understand the importance of investing in all girls, we can fundamentally change the STEM pipeline and the future of its workforce.”

Now, Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains is helping to make good on that pledge by working with ARMI | BioFabUSA, a Manufacturing USA institute, on a collaboration which includes new biofabrication curriculum and a patch for girls ages five to 17.
