Girl Scout Day

About the Day

Society of Women Engineers (SWE) hosts an annual event for Girl Scouts around the region, where daisies, brownies, juniors, and cadettes can come together for a day and learn about math, science, technology and engineering (STEM) with college-age mentors.  After the scouts have completed the day, they will receive a patch for participating in this event.  This day is meant to be a stimulating day full of activities in order to show how fun STEM-related fields can be!

This Year's Girl Scout Day will be held on Saturday, March 18th , 2017.
