Girl Scouts visit Great Falls College MSU for STEM Stars

Posted: Updated:

(GREAT FALLS) The Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming's north-central region had the chance to attend college for a day.

Great Falls College MSU hosted the event 'STEM STARS' in an effort to expose young girls to STEM fields.

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. 

The girls explored ideas of becoming a doctor, a dentist, and even a welder by learning the work from professors and current students.

Throughout the day, the Girl Scouts rotated between different centers, taking in all the information they would need to shape their future.

Crutchfield is the volunteer support manager for the Girl Scouts in Montana and Wyoming's north-central region and she said they believe in teaching girls to be go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, and leaders.

"We want to expose girls at a young age to these opportunities because starting from a young age, girls start believing that there are certain things that girls can do and certain things that girls can't do, that only boys can do," Crutchfield said. "And this gives them a chance to see that girls can do anything that they want to and that they are interested in."

Great Falls College MSU hosted about 30 Girl Scouts and hopes to continue working with young kids.
