Girl Scout Day is an annual event in January in which we invite 100 Girl Scouts to campus to participate in STEM-related demos and workshops. Professional industry engineers lead these workshops and Rice women engineering students assist throughout the day. Activities for this year’s event cover topics such as polymers, plane design, acids/bases, petroleum, and bridge building. The event has been very successful in the past. Girl Scouts have a blast seeing the demos and participating in the workshops. Volunteers love seeing how endlessly curious the girls are and answering their questions.

Currently the event registration is closed. But if you are a troop leader wishing to send your Girl Scouts to this event, a professional hoping to lead one of the workshops, or a student wanting to help out,  please send an email to our outreach chair, Nikitha Cherayil at!
