Scout's Honor

ABB's unique program is helping young girls get into STEM

ABB Motors and Drives debuted a program last year to stimulate STEM learning and interest amongst young girls via the Girl Scouts of America. The landmark idea has taken off, as of the past few months:

"We are so proud to support girls in STEM in the Girl Scouts - Diamonds of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas council" the manufacturer said on its Facebook page back in April, just the latest in a series of updates on the program's extension to new states.

According to the World Economic Forum, less than 30% of the world’s science researchers are women.

ABB piloted a program with the Girl Scouts – Diamonds of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas to spark girls’ interest in STEM. Girl Scouts earn the ABB Girls in STEM patch by working together with their troop – or on their own – to complete a STEM activity. building cardboard boats. The program went virtual due to COVID, allowing nearly 1,000 Girl Scouts from 31 states to earn the ABB-branded patch. Building on the success of this program, ABB is now expanding the patch program to Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta.
