At Girl Scouts – Diamonds, we take the increasingly important task of
sharing and introducing STEM topics to girls to the next level with
our focus on STEAM incorporating Art into the topics of Science,
Technology, Engineering and Math.
The STEAM Center at Burnham Woods is located at the Girl Scouts –
Diamonds Midwest Region property in Fort Smith and is a place where
girls can discover and explore their STEAM passions through hands-on,
learning-by-doing activities in a girl-focused, girl-led environment.
The STEAM Center is led by a STEAM specialist who hosts STEAM-focused
programs and badge workshops, as well as training for leaders.
STEAM is a key program focus for Girl Scouts - Diamonds, and that
focus is particularly strong at the newly enhanced space at Burnham
Woods. Girl Scouting introduces girls of all ages to STEAM activities
that help develop their creativity and hone their critical thinking
skills. Whether it’s building a robot, learning to code, or conducting
electrical experiments, we are helping girls move into a future that
is constantly changing and evolving. Like all Girl Scout programs,
STEAM activities offer girls the opportunity to explore and learn in a
safe, peer-supportive, “ok-to-fail” environment. This increases girls’
confidence in their own abilities and encourages positive social development.
When girls participate in Girl
Scout STEM programs, they benefit in four important ways:
Girls are excited about STEM subjects and want to learn more
Girls have confidence in their STEM skills and abilities.
Girls think scientifically to solve problems.
Girls learn the importance and relevance of STEM to people and society.
