Mobile STEM Center

Mobile STEM Center

Our Mobile STEM Center is a cargo van equipped with hands-on equipment and programming materials that can travel throughout our council’s geography, bringing STEM Experiences to our Girl Scouts in their community. Girls will not actually get inside the vehicle, rather the equipment will be set up within a determined location.

The Mobile STEM Center can be reserved by a Service Unit and then brought to you by a program specialist, providing instruction, equipment and supplies needed for a successful STEM event. Before you request a visit, be sure to review our General Information & Expectations to ensure you’re ready.

The Mobile STEM Center is prepared to deliver the following program to Girl Scouts:
