A new subscription service inspired by the Girl Scouts has been launched, which provides tween girls with hands-on activity boxes each month. GirlCratery products are designed for girls aged 5-11 and are themed around different STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and maths) subjects.

This recently released subscription service ships on the 15th of each month, delivering a different, themed project to the customer’s doorstep each time. GirlCratery (Powered by GSNYPENN Pathways) offers boxes that cover a broad range of STEAM-based activities, the latest of which have themes including camping, jewelry, baking, geocaching, and gadgets.

The subscription service is inspired by the Girl Scout experience, allowing young women to fully experience the world around them and become the best versions of themselves. GirlCratery subscribers can also join the new GC Club, which offers more project ideas and activities, printables, and “cratologist” perks like insider information and deals.

Encouraging girls aged 5-11 to participate in STEAM activities can have a significant impact on their creativity and confidence, according to a recent study from the University of South Carolina. The study found that girls who participated in STEAM activities (such as those in GirlCratery boxes) were more likely to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills and a greater sense of self-confidence and self-efficacy.

Additionally, GirlCratery helps to break down stereotypes and demystify STEAM subjects and activities, showing that anybody can succeed at them regardless of gender. For example, The Geocaching Crate includes items like a dangerous plant guide, a first aid kit, and a tool kit, all of which can help introduce young girls to various STEAM fields.

This launch is in line with GirlCratery’s commitment to using STEAM education themed-activities to help empower girls and open up a world of possibilities for their future.

GirlCratery is a non-profit that proudly partners with similar organizations in the community, including ARC of Onondaga. Its subscription service has already established a strong reputation for its high-quality activities, products, and professional customer service, as indicated by its numerous positive testimonials.

A satisfied parent said, “I love the creativity that was sparked by the crate that arrived on our doorstep. My daughter used it as a jumping-off point for many projects. You can tell this was created with girls in mind.”
