Girls of all ages and their families are invited to experience a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) event at the Girl Scouts of West Central Florida’s annual STEMapalooza on April 6 at Florida Polytechnic University in Lakeland.

GSWCF serves nearly 18,000 members across eight counties:  Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Marion, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sumter.

STEMapalooza is an opportunity for girls to learn about the world of science, technology, engineering and math, as well as discover what Girl Scouts has to offer. Attendees will get to explore STEM careers, chat with leading women in the STEM field and take part in fun, hands-on activities.

The event is open to not only Girl Scouts and their families, but any girl with an interest in STEM. Tickets are $5 for all attendees. Attendees can pre-register online at or at the event.
