Expanded Partnership Announcement
Media Advisory 11_15_16
Careers in STEM fields are growing rapidly! That’s why we’re partnering with Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana to offer more STEM programming to girls across the state.
Including programming on the August 2017 eclipse, leadership workshops with STEM professionals, and a mentorship program with the nation’s only all-girls STEM program at Mercy Academy.

Even though women make up nearly half of the American workforce, they hold barely a quarter of the jobs in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields. SkyTeach at WKU, Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana, and Kentucky Science Center are working to change these statistics! This October, join us at Western Kentucky University’s campus Saturday, October 21 for a full day of sessions designed to engage girls in STEM content through hands-on experiences. Parents, guardians, and leaders learn how to engage girls in STEM and receive great resources to continue STEM learning after the program ends. This program is NOT restricted to Girl Scouts, but sessions will include the completion of steps in many badges and journeys.

-Date: October 21, 2017
-Times: 8:45 AM – 2:30 PM CST
-Cost (breakfast and lunch included):
–$20 for Grades 4th-12th (full day)
–$5 for Parents/Troop Leaders/Chaperones
