Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida and Girl Scouts of the USA have announced 24 new badges designed to help girls practice ambitious leadership in the crucial areas of automotive engineering, STEM career exploration, entrepreneurship and civics. The new badges include Automotive Engineering (grades K–5), in which girls learn about designing, engineering and manufacturing vehicles, as well as the future of mobility; Civics (grades K–12), which offers an in-depth understanding of how local, state and federal government works while preparing girls to be voters, activists and political leaders; Entrepreneurship (grades K–12), in which girls develop an entrepreneurial mindset as they engage in age-appropriate exercises that help them create and pitch a product or service that solves a problem; and STEM Career Exploration (grades 2–8), where girls explore their career interests and connect them to STEM fields—particularly computer science, nature/environmental science, engineering, design, health and agriculture—that can help them address the pressing issues of our time.

With these new badge experiences, Girl Scouts leadership says the organization is working to build transformational female leaders for today and the future, and show girls the power they have to truly change the world. For more information, click here.
