After School Enrichment
Our programs are currently offered at several schools in the suburbs of Birmingham, with new schools being continually added to our program offerings. Our After School Enrichment Program is a fun, high energy, one-hour course filled with awesome hands-on learning projects. We INVIGORATE, EDUCATE, CREATE, & INNOVATE with the girls every single week. Class size remains small enough for instructors to attend to each student. We are a very select group of instructors passionate about STEM, gender-affirming opportunities, and creative hands-on projects. Our instructors are young and enthusiastic and the perfect match for our young and enthusiastic STEM students! Your girls will leave the class with a better understanding of the world around them that will leave a long-lasting impact on their lives. Programs are available to girls ages Kindergarten through 8th grade. Activities and collaborative work is differentiated to meet all learners’ levels in each class. Click here for more details.
Girls push boundaries, test limits, and look at the world around them with inquisitive eyes. They’re natural innovators! Girl Scouts of North Central Alabama introduces girls of every age to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) experiences relevant to everyday life. Whether they’re discovering how to design their own video game, creating their own cosmetic line or testing out a robot that creates art-girls are fast-forwarding into the future. This is the very reason why we have partnered with Girl Scouts of North Central Alabama to bring STEM Saturdays to various communities in the North Central Alabama region.

Girls have an exciting opportunity to compete in FIRST LEGO® League (FLL) competitions! All FLL teams combines the excitement of sports with the rigors of science and technology. They will get to discover, research and solve real-world engineering challenges, connect with engineering and science professionals, and take action to make positive contributions to society. FLL teams will build, design, test and program autonomous robots using LEGO MINDSTORMS technology. They will apply real world math and science concepts while learning critical thinking, team-building and presentation skills. Teams will also participate in local tournaments where they will have a chance to present the robot they have built to perform prescribe tasks against a field of competitors. No previous robotics experience necessary. Click here for more information.
