Girl Scout STEM Day

Girl Scout STEM Day 2024

April 6, 2024

Are you interested in giving back to the local science community? The Women in STEM (wiSTEM) chapter at The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is hosting a fun-filled day to expose Girl Scouts in the local Denver Metro area to the excitement and curiosity of science! Our goal is to educate young women and to demonstrate the value of STEM, which aligns with the values of Girl Scouts of America. As a STEM professional yourself, we hope that you appreciate our efforts and can support us in this event. We are kindly asking for donations/sponsorships from companies. We would appreciate if you could help us spread the word!

For the first time since the pandemic, 150 Girl Scouts are coming IN-PERSON to do hands-on science experiments and to hear from and ask questions to career panelists. Since this is an all-day event, we hope that sponsorships can support the food and experimental supplies that we need for our attendees, which include the Girl Scouts, their adult troop leaders, and our volunteers.

What do the sponsors get out of it?

  • Company advertisement to impressionable future young scientists
  • Company advertisement to our ~40 volunteers who are grad students, post docs, faculty and staff in life science labs at CU Anschutz Medical Campus, some of which are looking for career opportunities!
  • Company advertisement on our social media page
  • Opportunity to promote Women in STEM

This event is very important to our Girl Scouts and we have already received enthusiastic interest in the event (we hit capacity within one week!). The opportunity this grants to the girls is a far-reaching and long-lasting impact to encourage young girls to pursue science as an education and career. It is detrimental that this event happens for the future generation, which would not be possible without a donation of funds. Please consider sponsoring this event. It is much appreciated. Thank you for your time and we are looking forward to working with you! Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or comments.
