A Big Cheer for Girl Scout Engineers!
It's a great day for girls!
The Girl Scouts of the USA has added 23 new badges to their program, many in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). This means girls will have the opportunity to "design robots and race cars, create algorithms, collect data in the great outdoors...in an all-girl, girl-led environment where they feel comfortable to try new things and take appropriate risks."
This is a great step forward in encouraging our girls to pursue their interests and gain confidence in the STEM fields. Science has been lacking girl power for way too long.
Go forth Girls and make those Robots roll!
