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.
Computer Science | Cybersecurity: Girls learn how computers and the internet work and apply the concepts of safety and protection to everyday technology.
Computer Science | Coding for Good: Girls find out how to create computer programs, games, and apps that solve problems and help others. There is an “unplugged” version of this badge as well as a “plugged” version that allows girls to do activities online.
Space Science: Girls learn all about the Solar System and our place in it. Just like real scientists and astronauts, girls explore, observe, and investigate the Sun, Moon, and stars and discover that space is bigger and even more exciting than they imagined.
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.
It’s a great big world, and every day Girl Scouts work to make it a better place. These updated activities inspire girls to think globally as they explore and change the world.

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.
