The House that She Built
Exploring careers in construction is a great way to develop existing skills and discover new ones. Girl Scouts of Ohio's Heartland wants to empower girls to think about STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) and construction by meeting real professional women in building. The intent of this patch program is to build self-esteem and develop skills through curiosity and hands-on activities.
By completing this patch program, Girl Scouts might
- Explore what it takes to build a house
- Learn about different careers in the construction field
- Create a building design of their own
- Understand the importance of teamwork
