STACK Infrastructure has announced a new partnership with the Girl Scouts of Colorado to develop a programme providing Girl Scouts an opportunity to learn new STEM skills and insight into the data centre industry.

The programme, which is being run in collaboration with investment platform IPI Partners will reward participants with a patch showcasing their technical achievements.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Girl Scouts of Colorado to nurture today’s youth and open their eyes to the opportunities awaiting them in the world of data centers,” said Heather Paduck, Chief Financial Officer, STACK Americas at STACK Infrastructure.

“STACK looks forward to the upcoming wave of data centre talent, and we are excited about the transformative impact they will bring and the exceptional benefits they stand to gain.”

“Empowering young minds with STEM skills is essential for shaping the future of technology,” added Lauren Sullivan, Managing Director at IPI Partners. “By collaborating with Girl Scouts of Colorado and STACK Infrastructure, we’re fostering innovation and ensuring that the next generation is well-equipped to thrive in the data centre industry and beyond.”

The programme will offer three learning modules, bridging the gap between everyday applications and data centres. Participating Girl Scouts will develop their own software applications and design their own server layouts for data centres. Completion of the programme earns participants a STACK and IPI-sponsored patch exclusive to Girl Scouts of Colorado.

“We believe in the potential of every girl to change the world, and this partnership opens up new avenues for our Girl Scouts to understand the critical role data centres serve,” said Leanna Clark, CEO, Girl Scouts of Colorado. “Through this programme, we aim to inspire the next generation of tech enthusiasts who will soon inherit this rapidly-transforming world of technology.”
