Girl Scouts

Girl Scouts in the Nation's Capital Council

Boolean Girl is proud to be a Program Partner with the Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital Council.  We offer free events for girls and Troops to earn their Coding Basics Badges.   Other Coding for Good badges can be earned by taking the appropriate online class with Boolean Girl. Troops are also welcome to schedule the Boolean Girl team to virtually visit your troop meeting.

Earning the Coding Basics Badge

Brownies, Juniors, and Cadettes can earn their Coding for Good, Coding Basics Badge by attending a free Hour of Code Event and one Ambassador event. Each month each of the three events are offered online.  Each month we also hold two Ambassador events where you can learn about women in STEM from female STEM professionals.

Scheduling a Troop Meeting with Boolean Girl

How it works

Fill out a request form for the date and time of interest. We work with you to schedule the meeting online via zoom. On the agreed-upon day and time our instructors will run all the activities related to the selected badge(s).  At the end we will send certificates for each girl so you can award them their badges.

What We Do

At the meeting, we will complete coding projects that satisfy the requirements for the Coding Basics Badge for the appropriate age/rank of the girls.

Interested in earning other coding badges?  See the schedule below for the more advanced coding badges that the courses that satisfy these requirements.

Cost and Timeframe

It costs a flat fee of $60 for entire troop to participate (up to 25 girls).  The events typically take 60 – 90 minutes.  We follow the same procedure and curriculum as we do for the Hour of Code Events.
