Girl Scouts and STEAM

At Girl Scouts, we introduce girls of every age to science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math (STEAM) to help them see how they can actually improve the world—whether they're discovering how a car's engine runs, learning to manage finances, or caring for animals.

We’d like every girl to explore different aspects of STEAM every year, so we’ve developed a unique, "fun with purpose" K–12 curriculum to inspire girls to embrace and celebrate scientific discovery in their lives.

5 Weeks of STEAM at Ducktail Day Camp

At Ducktail Day Camp, she'll explore the world around her, try new things, and build self-confidence while having a blast. And remember - your day camper can invite her very best friends to attend with her...even if they aren't Girl Scouts! Before and after care provided for busy families, too!

Join us for all 10 weeks of Ducktail Day Camp or the 5 weeks devoted to STEAM activities!

Meet Our STEAM Director

Britney Davis - STEAM Director
Britney Davis

Britney Davis was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. At an early age, Britney practiced gymnastics and trained in various styles of dance including ballet, jazz, tap, modern, and pointe. To further develop her artistry, Britney performed with the Grace Dance Theater of Philadelphia, Koresh Dance Company, and Philadanco! The Philadelphia Dance Company.

Girl Scouts aided in Britney’s love for travel as she used her cookie profits to attend three Girl Scout Destinations: The Space Academy in Huntsville, Alabama and travels to Northern California and Costa Rica.

Graduating from Villanova University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering with minors in Business and Engineering Entrepreneurship in 2015, Britney played an active role in reactivating the Villanova University chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers, an organization dedicated to stimulating minority growth within engineering.
