Girl Scouts, ARMI launch collaboration
Partnership to increase awareness, encourage girls to enter biofabrication and STEM fields
The Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains have begun a collaboration with the Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute in Manchester designed to increase girls’ awareness and interest in STEM fields future careers.
The institute, known as ARMI, is working on developing next-generation large-scale manufacturing processes and technologies for cells, tissues and organs.
