Girl Scouts of America
We have partnered with the Girl Scouts of America to foster interest in STEM careers among young girls by creating a CARMMHA inspired patch which will focus on the impacts of oil spills on marine mammals.
The CARMMHA Consortium includes several women leaders in the fields of environmental health, conservation science, and marine mammal medicine. We are uniquely positioned to utilize this group of female scientists to inspire young girls across the country to pursue similar paths, particularly those living in impacted Gulf communities.
Girls are increasingly losing interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) careers by the 8th grade. Specific goals of this effort include:
- Celebrating our youth’s STEM potential, especially in the context of being good stewards of the environment.
- Bringing awareness to the scientific process and practices of a GoMRI-supported collaborative consortium.
- Creating opportunities that build girl’s confidence in their STEM capabilities through pursuing STEM projects, with a goal of earning a GoMRI-inspired patch.
- Nurturing a community that supports girls’ aspirations to pursue STEM careers, particularly those that would conserve Gulf community resources.
