Reflecting its ongoing commitment to Girl Scouts, AT&T is supporting the launch of new Coding for Good badges for Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors. The new badges are designed to give girls more hands-on experience in STEM than ever before. Girls will learn about algorithms through age-appropriate, creative activities, such as coding positive memes to spread a message about a cause they care about, designing a digital game to educate people about an issue, and developing an app to promote healthy habits. Every Coding for Good badge has a plugged and an unplugged version, so that all girls can learn the foundations of coding, regardless their access to technology. And in true Girl Scout fashion, the badge work emphasizes how girls can use their STEM skills to make the world a better place by addressing everyday problems that people face.
As a seasoned GSUSA partner, AT&T has long supported Girl Scouts as we prepare the female leaders of tomorrow—backing programs like Imagine Your STEM Future, which inspired girls to pursue STEM careers, and G.I.R.L. 2017, the world’s largest girl-led event for girls and young women and everyone who supports them.
At Girl Scouts, we prepare girls for a lifetime of leadership, success, and adventure, which is something that partnerships with forward-thinking organizations like AT&T helps us accomplish.
