I really meant to post this yesterday, but you know what they say about the best laid plans. March 12, 2012 marked the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts of America. Like SWE, Girl Scouts is about empowering girls. SWE has partnered with Girl Scouts over the years, both nationally and at the local level, which seems like an obvious pairing. Were you a Girl Scout? A Brownie? What opportunities did the Girl Scouts give you to explore the world around you? I loved the camping trips, the crafts and earning the badges. I could have done without the cookie selling. The cookie eating is much more enjoyable.
I don’t remember any STEM-related badges or activities, though maybe if I think harder I can picture a badge with binary on it that I might have earned. Certainly there are more of those options now. What badges can you still remember earning? How do you support the Girl Scouts? Buying cookies counts!
