Girl Scouts FIRST Robotic program receives funding from Monsanto

Monsanto Fund provided a grant of $25,000 to support Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri’s FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics programs in 2014-15.

Girl Scouts FIRST Robotics is a mentor-based program designed to cultivate interest in STEM fields, where girls will learn valuable life and employment skills by learning how to become leaders, creating ideas, solving problems and overcoming obstacles.

In its 2014-15 season, Girl Scouts will organize at least 30 all-girl FIRST Robotic teams, providing age-appropriate STEM activities for four tiers of teams. To learn more, visit girlscoutsem.org or contact a local Girl Scout leader.
