Girl Scout Engineering Saturday (GSES) is a program for local Girl Scout troops in Maryland and the Washington metropolitan area. Cadettes and Seniors (grades 6-10) engage in fun hands-on activities and earn the Women in Engineering Girl Scout Engineering Saturday patch. This program is offered twice a year in February and October. There is a $10 registration fee for each participant to cover lunch and the cost of patches.
Goals of GSES
- To expose Girl Scout Troops to engineering related activities
- To introduce young women to professional career options in engineering or science
- To provide university students with the chance to develop and implement engineering related activities, and to enhance their communication and leadership skills
Please note that because of high program interest only a limited number of participants are able to be accommodated. You will be notified upon acceptance to the program and provided additional program details regarding payment and permission forms as well as directions to campus and the program schedule.
Registration for GSES is on a first come, first serve basis. Please submit the Online Registration Form as soon as possible to secure your space in this program. A notice will be posted on the website when all spaces are filled.
