STEM Program Receives 2012 STEM Innovation Award

A program used by the Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama  (GSNCA) recently earned the Silicon Valley Education Foundation's 2012 STEM Innovation Award. This national competition recognizes the best and brightest thought leaders and programs in science, technology, engineering and math from across the country. Techbridge received the Science award for its innovative programming for girls.

GSNCA adopted the Techbridge program, known locally as Girls GO Tech, in the summer of 2012 to introduce girls to the wonders of engineering and science. The program provides girls with firsthand experience working as engineers—from designing toys and building turbines, to meeting professional engineers. Girls GO Tech curriculum also helps girls gain critical-thinking and practical-life skills while promoting cooperation and teamwork.
