Girl Scouts Western Oklahoma is excited to announce the opening of their STEM center of excellence and urban camp, Camp Trivera, located in the Adventure District in Oklahoma City. Serving girls entering kindergarten through high school, Girl Scouts offers STEM programming via their Girl Scouts at Home program, day camps, resident camp, troop meetings, virtual events and more. Girl Scouts offers many STEM-related badge programs, including Automotive Engineering, where girls learn about designing, engineering and manufacturing vehicles, as well as the future of mobility. They design their own vehicles, test prototypes, learn about design thinking and create their own assembly line manufacturing process. In Outdoor STEM: Think Like a Citizen Scientist, girls participate in interactive activities to learn how scientists solve problems using the scientific method. Girls practice observation, collect data and complete a citizen science project. Then they create their Take Action project.
