Girl Scouts point next generation towards STEM Careers with 23 new badges
The Girl Scouts want to see more women in STEM careers.
The organization announced this week it is adding 23 new badges related to science, technology, engineering, math and the outdoors.
Girl Scouts can now earn badges through activities like programming robots, designing model race cars, writing code and going on environmentally conscious camping trips.
The Girl Scouts of the USA, founded in 1912, has created badges with the help of organizations like Code.org, SciStarter, GoldieBlox and the Society of Women Engineers.
