CALLING ALL TROOPS

Help test new STEM programming this fall.

Girl Scouts of the USA has teamed up with our council to test the NEW Daisy, Brownie & Junior Coding for Good Badges.

We need troops who will volunteer their time to test the NEW Coding for Good Badges. Troops selected will be randomly assigned to test either plugged (device needed) or the unplugged (no device needed) version of the program. Troops selected for the plugged version of the curriculum will be able to use tablets through their Council.

No STEM experience necessary – all Girl Scout volunteers can deliver this program!

Why Participate?
  • Be the first to try new STEM Badge activities.
  • Help develop national STEM programming by providing feedback.
  • Earn a $100 Amazon gift card for their troop to support troop-related program expenses.
What's Involved?

Each troop will be required to complete the Coding for Good Badges (a set of 3 progressive badges, for a total of 6 meetings) between October 1 and December 17, 2018 and to participate in the pilot research and experience documentation.
