Bringing you bright ideas with support from PPL! 

Our STEAM Mobile (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) is ready to visit you virtually for the 2020-2021 Girl Scout year and bring bright ideas to Girl Scouts and community partners across our 30 counties in Central Pa and NEPA! Our Program Coordinators are hard at work and are excited to bring you programs virtually! This year, 10 programs have been adapted for virtual programming.

What’s new? Virtual STEAM Mobile programming will be offered certain days of the week with a set program topic. Check out the schedule and sign up individually or with your troop for the days that work for your schedule! Programs are divided into 2 sections based on Girl Scout level. Girls are responsible for their own supplies
