Badges and Journeys »

From Mechanical Engineering to Cybersecurity to Citizen Scientist, Girl Scouts has many new offerings! A list of new and upcoming STEM badges and Journeys is available here.

Please note: many of these new materials are available for free, and only on the Volunteer Toolkit (VTK). For a list of all STEM-related badges by program level, check out GSUSA’s Badge Explorer.

light-bulb_32Did you know? In the United States, 74% of girls express interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math in middle school. By high school, only 0.3% girls plan to major in Computer Science—Girl Scouts is on a mission to change that (GSRI: Generation STEM)!

Many of our badges use STEM activities in fun ways. In addition, we have several badge categories specifically relating to STEM topics.

The badges help girls build valuable technology skills; explore science topics they love like video games and roller coasters; solve problems as they use methods from fields like anthropology, engineering, and graphic design; and treating minor injuries.
