Celebrating Science for the Next Generation
Last night (Nov. 13) Girl Scouts were at the New York Academy of Sciences celebrating "Science in the City."  The theme: Strengthening the STEM Pipeline: Mentoring the Innovators of Tomorrow. Earlier this year the Girl Scouts Research Institute and the New York Academy of Sciences released "Generation STEM: What Girls Say About Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathmematics," to much fanfare and success.   Throughout the week join Girl Scouts on Facebook and Twitter for gala recaps and behind-the-scenes insights from renowned scientists and more.
