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.
Life Skills Badge
College Preparation From test prep to financial aid, Ambassadors walk through all
the steps of the college admission process and get ready to attend the
school of their choice.
Engineering| Think Like an Engineer: Girls discover how to
think like an engineer by participating in hands-on design challenges
and complete a Take Action project.
Computer Science|Think Like a Programmer: Girls learn
how programmers solve problems by participating in
computational-thinking activities and complete a Take Action project.
*Select Journeys are available for purchase in shops
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.
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.
