Don’t worry—no previous cybersecurity experience is necessary to join in the fun!

About the Collaboration

The Cyber Challenge and the launch of the first national computer science program by the Girl Scouts of USA is made possible through a multiyear commitment from Raytheon. Raytheon is collaboraring with Girl Scouts to help close the gender gap in STEM fields by helping prepare girls to pursue careers in fields like cybersecurity, computer science, artificial intelligence, and robotics. Together, Raytheon and Girl Scouts are reaching girls during formative school years, where research shows peer pressure can sometimes deter girls from pursing their interest in STEM.
