Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) and Netflix are partnering to empower young girls to pursue a future in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).
Together GSUSA and Netflix are launching the STEM Superstars Guide, an online resource that encourages girl scouts across the US to discover STEM fields. The guide provides Girl Scout volunteers with tools to inspire girls’ interest in STEM subjects and includes troop activities and examples of STEM role models.
To celebrate the partnership, leaders from GSUSA and Netflix were joined by Google, Instagram and Twitter to kick off the She Rules: STEM event on October 4. The event focused on Project Mc2, the Netflix original series from MGA Entertainment.
As part of the celebration, Girl Scout troops were invited to hear from real-world STEM experts and get a sneak-peek at season three of Project Mc2. The scouts were then challenged to put their STEM skills to the test through hands-on experiments inspired by the show.
Project Mc2 premiered on Netflix in 2015, with additional digital content hosted by AwesomenessTV. The series targets kids six to 13 and focuses specifically on tween girls in an effort to build an understanding of and interest in STEM fields.
