Outreach Programs


PEER snapshot

Project WISE is a one-week residential camp held in June for middle school girls (7th - 8th graders) to introduce them to careers in STEM.

STEM Connections is an excellent opportunity for elementary, middle, and high school girls to make the connection between engineering and science and their lives.

The Girls Scouts of the Old 96 council in a collaboration with the Clemson's Center for Advanced Engineering Fibers and Films offers, "Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day," an outreach program.

It's a Girl Thing is a program targeting middle school girls in Anderson School District Five. The middle schools that are involved are Lakeside Middle School, Southwood Middle School, and McCants Middle School. The goal of the club is to introduce the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), in a safe and encouraging learning environment. To expose girls to nontraditional, educational, and professional career fields, while also increasing self-confidence. In addition to career awareness, “It's a Girl Thing” provides training in career-supporting skills, such as: team work, oral presentations, social skills, and an exposure to cultural and current events. Meetings are held at the middle schools during the school day. “It's a Girl Thing” is funded by the Engineering Foundation and the AAUW Educational Foundation.
