"The future is yours for the taking" is the motto Netflix is going with when it decided to team up with Girl Scouts. They want the kids to know that STEM Careers are theirs for the taking.

For the past year, Netflix, the popular video streaming online platform, has been busy encouraging young girls to pursue STEM. STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) are career fields that can take them anywhere and everywhere. And this is something Netflix is passionate about with their original show 'Project Mc2.'

'Project Mc2' is now on its third season. And according to Babble, is a show that features McKeyla McAlister and her friends. They are secret ops that works for NOV8 (innovate). They use STEM to save and protect the whole world. Each girl is a valuable member of the organization and covers all STEM fields. And the show is the perfect example for young girls looking to pursue a career in STEM.

Women, female students and young girls are under represented in STEM career fields. With Netflix taking an interest on the future of this children, partnering with the Girl Scouts of America seems like the best way to change all that. According to GSA's Research Institute, 74% of teen girls in the United States are interested in STEM. But women only make up 20% of the degrees in these fields.

Which is why Netflix invited the Girl Scout Troops to their headquarters in Los Gatos, California to campaign for "She Rules: STEM." Young girls get the chance to listen to and witness STEM Experts and role models give inspirational talks.

And as a treat, Netflix reveals a sneak peek of 'Project Mc2' season 3 with the cast of the show! Such a treat for Girl Scouts who are fans of the show. This is just the start for girls everywhere. Women and young girls should be inspired to work in STEM and be leaders of the industry.
