Special thanks to ABB for sponsoring STEAM Center events for 2022!
STEAM is a key program focus for Girl Scouts - Diamonds, and that focus is particularly strong at the ever-evolving 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, “okay-to-fail” environment. This increases girls’ confidence in their own abilities, enhances self-reflection and evaluation skills, and encourages positive social development.

Is there a specific STEAM Badge your troop wants to earn? Our STEAM Center staff is here to help!
Sign up for one of our Reservable Badge Workshops (search “Reservable Badge Workshop” on our Event List page to select a date). These workshops are open to one troop, or by agreement of multiple troops going together. Workshop content is level-specific and led by council staff.
