Five Pantex volunteers recently partnered with Girl Scouts to put on a STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) workshop for elementary-aged girls and assisted the Girl Scouts with their STEM-based activities.
Savannah Gates, a Pantex volunteer, said she jumped on the opportunity to volunteer with the Girl Scouts in hopes of being one of the rippling sources for the younger generation of girls.
"It felt so right being surrounded by the women working effortlessly to shape, guide and enable the next generation of young women into the strong female figures of tomorrow,” she said.
Kathi Schutz, Amarillo Area Director for the Girl Scouts, said she was grateful that the women engineers came on the day the Girl Scouts were focused on engineering.
"They made the activities for the girls special just with their insight and passion for their profession," said Schutz. "This group of women spent one afternoon with girls and just by being young professional role models, influenced so many girls in a profound way."
