While girls and boys score similarly in math and science, by eighth grade, boys tend to be twice as interested in careers involving these subjects. Engineering in the United States is largely a male-dominated field. Girl Scouts of Maryland (GSCM) provides hands-on learning experiences and educational programming to spark an interest in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) among young girls.
STEM programming targets girls ages 11–17 from Baltimore and Anne Arundel County, areas that are often considered at-risk because of financial constraints. Student participants spend four days getting better acquainted with science, technology, engineering, and math through hands-on activities and applications of math, science, and technology to practical, everyday situations. Girls also meet with female professionals who share their experiences in math and science fields. The organization requires additional donations to fund free programming for girls from at-risk areas of Baltimore.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help GSCM encourage young girls to explore career paths in science, engineering, math, and technology. If G-Team members raise $300, then six girls can attend one of GSCM's four-day STEM programs. Each additional $50 raised will sponsor another girl's attendance at a STEM program.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
