Dell continues to collaborate with Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA), most recently by supporting the development of Coding for Good badges for Girl Scout Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors. Through their shared mission of preparing the next generation of female leaders in technology, Dell and GSUSA are giving girls the tools and experiences they need to empower themselves for careers in STEM.
The Coding for Good badges teach girls the basics of coding and detail how every stage of the coding process offers girls opportunities to use their skills for good. Girls 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.
A longstanding Girl Scout partner for almost ten years, Dell has supported Girl Scouts’ most innovative programs, including Be the Video Game Developer and the Digital Cookie™ platform. Be the Video Game Developer gives girls hands-on experience creating video games—and Digital Cookie, part of the iconic Girl Scout Cookie Program, takes girls “beyond the booth” to provide them with web-based entrepreneurial know-how that helps them cultivate and expand their cookie businesses while equipping them with essential life skills.
