GSMA North America is happy to announce a yearlong partnership with Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta to co-host a series of four hands-on “Girl, Find your Voice” AI STEM workshops in 2019-2020 to increase self-confidence and interest in technology. Girls will learn coding skills using a Google Voice kit and Raspberry Pi to help unleash their creativity. They will listen to speakers who will inspire and encourage them to pursue education and careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). Upon successful completion of the session, participants will earn a newly created Tech4Girls patch, and the GS Think like an Engineer Journey, one of two badges towards a gold award (the highest award a girl can achieve.)
The first two workshops will be dedicated towards the achieving the GS Journey, while latter sessions will be part of a multi-layer GS STEM Lab Coat Program where girls have 2 years to complete a series of STEM activities at various locations across Atlanta that will lead to badge attainment, a STEM Lab Coat, and the Girl Scout STEM Patch.
The first session kicked off on October 12th 2019 in support of International Day of the Girl, celebrating the theme: GirlForce: Unscripted and Unstoppable.
