STEM Badges for Girls in Grades 2-8!

The new frontier of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) is already here, and girls are taking the lead. With 24 new badges in areas like automotive engineering and entrepreneurship, Girl Scouts are more ready than ever to take on the world and shake up the status quo.

The STEM Career Exploration badges for Girl Scouts in grades 2-8, funded by IF/THEN, an initiative of Lyda Hill Philanthropies, are perfect for girls interested in breaking the mold in the world of STEM. Read on to learn more about these badges!

Explore Careers in STEM!

With the STEM Career Exploration badges, Girl Scout Brownies and Juniors (grades 2-5) will dig into their own interests and consider how these can became a career in the future. They’ll take a look at different fields in STEM, exploring careers in each field, and learning how STEM can make the world a better place. They’ll also brainstorm ways to build their own career paths!

Cadette girls will take this knowledge to the next level and explore how they want to make a difference in the world or their community, learn more about the various career opportunities in STEM industries, and build their own path to success, deciding how they can develop a future career in STEM. The girls will then make a plan and share their goals with others who can motivate and sustain their ambitions!
