National STEAM Day!

Let’s get innovating!

It’s time to get your hands dirty and bring out you inner mad scientist. We’ll make slime, build robots out of Legos, and learn about circuits! We have everything you need to bring out you inner innovator (aka awesomeness).

All this can be brought to you at any Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee property, or we can travel to your troop meeting. This is your chance to be the mad scientist, find your inner Picasso, and construct the tallest tower.

    Enjoy building things out of Lego bricks? Ever wish those things could move or make sounds? We have Lego Robotic kits that let you create lions that stand up and roar, alligators that snap their jaws shut when they sense movement and self-propelled tops. This program can be extended to make multiple robots and challenges.
