Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast has received a $15,000 grant from the Amgen Foundation to launch the 2017 Imagine Your STEM Future program, which will provide STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) activities to approximately 325 low-income girls, ages 5-18 in Ventura County. The Amgen Foundation seeks to advance excellence in science education to inspire the next generation of innovators, and invest in strengthening communities where Amgen staff members live and work.
The goal of the Imagine program is to expand girls’ STEM skills as they enjoy hands-on experiments, explore STEM careers, and care for their environment with the help of a strong network of volunteers.
Whether girls want to learn how to build a robot, a catapult, or participate in global conservation efforts, Girl Scout programs helps them imagine their STEM future with help from grantors such as the Amgen Foundation.
