Girl Scouts of NE Kansas and NW Missouri was recently awarded a $2,500 grant from the BNSF Railway Foundation
to implement Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) programming.
Funding will be used to support program areas, including: Troop Leader Training; Community Partner Programs; Camp Programming; and the Outreach Program. Major costs associated to provide these core program areas include: program supplies, program center hosting, and staff salary and benefits. Staff are integral to the STEM Program. For example, the STEM Program manager's expertise is critical for guiding and creating program curriculum, training volunteers, and developing STEM activity guides for the four camp properties.
