STEM Center for Excellence
Camp Paumalu, Oahu North Shore
The STEM Center for Excellence at Camp Paumalū is a sprawling
135-acre living laboratory located on Oʻahu’s North Shore that
provides year-round opportunities in cybersecurity, astronomy,
robotics, computer coding, botany, chemistry, environmental
stewardship and more. Our mission is to provide better support of
high-quality STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math)
engagement for Girl Scouts and non-Girl scouts by working with
national partners like: NASA, SETI Institute, Raytheon, Palo Alto
Networks and The North Face.
Together with educators, school students, and the community, the
facility will create engaging curriculums and attract local young
students to increase not only female STEM interest, but also increase
the number of STEM professionals in Hawaiʻi.
Invest in Girls and Change the world.
By expanding the reach and relevancy of these facilities to non-Girl
Scouts in Hawaiʻi, GSH can provide a quality STEM leadership training
facility for students and educators, in order to increase their
proficiency and confidence. The desired long-term outcome is that
these leaders of all ages will better understand their relationship to
the larger world and become responsible global citizens.
