Girl Scouts Rock @NASA to celebrate the big 100!


NASA helped mark the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts of America by hosting a Girl Scouts Rock@NASA event on June 8 at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C. NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver, former astronauts Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper and Pam Melroy and other scientists and invited guests spoke with attendees about NASA’s missions, discoveries and careers.

NASA and the Girl Scouts share a common goal to encourage and educate young girls about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in exciting and innovative ways. The Girl Scouts began in 1912 with only 18 girls. Today, there are 3.2 million girls and adults who are members. In 100 years, the organization has graduated more than 59 million women in the United States.

The event is part of the Women@NASA project, which is a continuing joint effort by NASA and the White House Council on Women and Girls to relate science, technology, engineering and math fields to young females.
