Girl Scouts Can Now Earn Badges in STEM-Related Fields

Girl Scouts Can Now Earn Badges in STEM-Related Fields STEM-related fields include science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The Girl Scouts are rolling out 30 new badges in these disciplines for girls ages 5 to 18. The news of the badges was announced in November 2017 in an effort to reduce the gender gap in those fields. The badges will require efforts in the areas of cybersecurity, robotics, computer science, space exploration and the environment. Sylvia Acevedo, Girl Scouts USA CEO Discrepancies still remain between the badges of the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts. The Boy Scouts announced in October of 2017 that they would start accepting girls into their ranks.
