RESCHEDULED: GiT MKE & Girl Scouts of WI SE Career Mentorship Event

We are extremely excited to announce Girls in Tech Milwaukee and GSWISE (Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast) have partnered to offer exciting career exploration opportunities for girls in grades 6-8. This first event will introduce the initiatives of the Girl Scouts STEM program and how Girls in Tech Milwaukee members will play a big role in mentorship and creating opportunities for young girls to think of technology, math, engineering, digital, entrepreneurship, and science as careers they can be leaders in. This meeting will serve as a workshop where GiT members will pair up with one another and create a curriculum to present at a future troop meeting. The curriculum content is meant to be fun and creative! The curriculum, contact information and availability will then be posted on the Girl Scouts website where local troop leaders choose a curriculum for their group of girls. The GiT mentors will travel to the troop meeting where they will share experiences and information about their profession or technology interests. Girls will then get to try their hand at a career related activity.

Example of Curriculum to be posted on GSWISE Website: A Day in the Life of a Graphic Designer & Engineer Do you like to create and design things? Learn how graphic designers and engineers use critical thinking and problem solving skills to be creative in the development of products and marketing materials for everyday items. Work as a team to invent a new product and create the marketing to sell it. Monday, March 17, 2014, available from 4:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. Monday, March 31, 2014, available from 5:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. Contact [masked] to schedule.


We hope to see you there!

    I am so excited to get started on this project and can't wait to be involved in the girl scouts. Thanks so much to everyone who had a hand in putting this together! I am thinking about doing a workshop on building a website. I did hear a few other teams talking about that possibility so if there is anyone else doing that please comment here so we don't duplicate. Thanks!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
