It’s all about science these days for Girl Scouts. Hundreds of Los Angeles area Girl Scouts and their families will be on hand for a fun-filled day of exploring the wonders of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) at Glendale Community College during the annual Family Science Festival on Sunday, Oct. 25, 2009. The event is generously sponsored by Edison International.

Climate change and environmental science take center stage at this year’s festival as numerous hands-on activities reveal the wonders of STEM. The keynote presentation will focus on these headline themes, while numerous exhibitors will highlight a variety of STEM topics, in addition to climate change and environmental science. Girls of all ages will experience a day of discovery as they learn about the importance of science, technology, engineering, and math in our everyday lives, connect with the opportunities (both traditional and creative) that exist within STEM careers, and take action toward making our world a better place.
