Beyond Thin Mints: Girl Scouting & STEM

BY ALLISON MARTINSON
@ VOL 22 ON APR 13, 2017

When you think about Girl Scouts, you probably don't think about Juliette Gordon Low, the hard-of-hearing inventor that helped bring scouting to the United States. You're probably thinking about cookies. Cookies are a Girl Scout's first introduction to entrepreneurship. Allison Martinson introduces them to engineering. At Girl Scouts of Wisconsin - Badgerland, Girl Scouts are learning to use their dreams and ideas to make, build, design, create, dissect, and analyze. Badgerland's program introduces girls to code, robotics, entomology, and rocketry, connects girls to inspiring adult volunteers, and encourages girls to use STEM to make the world a better place.
