STEM Badges Awarded to Girl Scouts at Microsoft Store
Girl Scouts Earn STEM Award from Microsoft
A new partnership between Microsoft Stores and Girl Scouts of the USA, girls will be able to learn digital skills and earn different STEM badges.
Early, this year, several Girl Scouts participated in a STEM badge workshop at a Microsoft Store in NorthPark Center in Dallas. While there, they visualized a robot that could, one day in the future, help clean up the environment by picking up trash and disposing of it.
Determined to realize their vision, they set out on a task of coding and programming their robot, making it talk and move. They then presented their creation to the workshop attendees and earned their Robotics badges.
“This is the core of what Girl Scouts offer,” said Hillary St. John, Girl Program Manager of Northeast Texas. “Collaboration, learning by doing and fostering creativity and leadership are all central to our educational programs.”
