LEGO stands for IGG’s dedication to girls in STEM. And we have built up quite a history with this empowering tool. In 2018 we launched our STEM Badge for Ladybirds and, working with Dublin City University (DCU) and Science Foundation Ireland, designed a LEGO Robotics programme where Brownies created, built and programmed autonomous motorised LEGO models for water conservation. Guides also took part in a special DCU Girl Guides Lego Camp and a ‘Mission to Mars’ challenge and built robots that completed a series of tasks on a simulated moon surface. In 2019 and 2020 Irish Girl Guides took part in the First LEGO League competitions, thanks to our partnership with DCU’s LEGO Education Innovation Studio. Through innovative LEGO programmes IGG are putting #GirlsinSTEM firmly on the map. IGG believes that providing girls with the opportunity to develop their STEM skills in a girl–only setting strengthens their confidence to study STEM subjects in school and investigate careers in this area.
We are now relocating to a new larger home in Tallaght, Dublin 24, a blank canvas warehouse that we have purchased, and now need to renovate and fit-out. This space will serve to amplify our reach and enhance our programmes – a hub that will extend our impact, and empower Irish girls and young women for generations to come.
