What’s New


Journeys and badges in cybersecurity,
eco-camping, robotics, college prep, space science, and more!

We’re always evaluating—and enhancing—what girls do, how girls connect, and how girls grow as Girl Scouts. We listen to what girls, parents, and volunteers tell us about what they like most, and we take action to keep our program relevant and engaging. This year, we added new Journeys and badges in STEM and the outdoors!

Combined with existing STEM and outdoor programs, as well as programming that addresses life skills and entrepreneurship, these new Journeys and badges help girls empower themselves to take the lead like a Girl Scout as they accomplish amazing things.

STEM Badges

Computer Science | Cybersecurity: Girls learn how computers and the internet work and apply the concepts of safety and protection to the technology they use every day.

Engineering |Mechanical Engineering: Girls use design thinking to complete hands-on mechanical engineering design challenges.

Engineering| Robotics: Girls learn how robots are designed, built, and programmed. “Unplugged” activities allow girls to earn badges without kits.

Space Science: Girls learn all about the Solar System and our place in it. Just like real space scientists, girls explore, observe, and investigate the Sun, Moon, and stars and discover that space is bigger and even more exciting than they may have imagined.

Outdoor Badges

Environmental Stewardship
From learning to care for our planet to minimizing our ecological impact outdoors to advocating for nature, girls learn how to become stewards of our precious environment.

Outdoor STEM | Think Like a Citizen Scientist
Girls participate in interactive activities to learn how scientists solve problems using the scientific method. Girls practice observation, collect data, and complete a citizen science project. Then they create their Take Action project. 

High Adventure
Girls choose their own adventure with these unique two-in-one badges that let girls decide which activity they’ll participate in. Whether trail running, hiking, snowboarding, or tree climbing, there’s an outdoor activity perfectly suited to every girl’s interest, skill level, and age.

Global Action Award
Girls participate in activities that address the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 5: Gender Equality and complete a Take Action project to promote gender equality in their communities and beyond.
