STEM - A Patch Program

stem_patch.pngThink about it: Science, technology, engineering, and math are everywhere! The color spectrum is a science and your car and computer are constantly changing with new technology. Your house is the work of an engineer, and math includes knowing how much change you will get at the store. It appears as though STEM is all around you, so you might as well embrace it! This STEM Patch Program was created by Girl Scout Junior Troop 3659 from Spokane, WA as part of their Girl Scout Bronze Award. Patches are available for purchase in the GSEWNI Store for $1.99.
