TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - With a demand for more women in STEM, a local college hoped to spark that interest in young girls Saturday.

Rose Hulman Institute of Technology hosted Discover STEM for Girl Scouts.

Girl Scouts of Central Indiana invited all members across the state to participate.

More than 70 girls were there to learn about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Through hands on projects, organizers say they're hoping to get girls excited about STEM.

"It is spectacular that the girls get to engage with the students at Rose-Hulman. That they get to come out on campus, and also that they get to meet some of our leaders in the community," said Bernadette Ewen, Rose-Hulman director.

Girl Scouts recently introduced the first engineering badges.

Those who participated today could earn one of their own.
