STEAM Programming to Look Forward to This Fall

Fall STEAM Programs for Girl Scouts in Los Angeles.

No comments

This year, the autumnal equinox isn’t until September 22, but here at GSGLA, we wanted to start our Fall Programming a bit earlier! We’ve already released our full 2022 Fall Program Guide, but we wanted to dive a little deeper into our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Mathematics) programming this year. 

As you likely know already, in March 2022, Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles opened the Inglewood Innovation Center to help bring STEAM education opportunities to local Girl Scouts. The center is accessible to all GSGLA’s members and can even be reserved for your troop’s events and activities for up to 16 girls! Between now and September 30, troops can reserve the Inglewood Innovation Center for the low price of $75 and beginning October 1, the reservation price will be $100. Reservations made by September 30 for any future date will be at the lower price, so be sure to book your spot today

Whether you make a reservation for the IIC or not, Girl Scouts are encouraged to attend one or more of these upcoming Fall STEAM-focused programs!
