Boolean Girl Resources for Girl Scouts
Boolean Girl is a nonprofit organization based in Arlington VA that was created to narrow the gender gap in STEM fields through education and exposure to STEM topics. In addition to our after-school clubs and summer camps we provided online and in-person opportunities for Girl Scouts to earn badges and enhance their STEM skills.
For All Girl Scouts
All Girl Scouts are welcome to use Boolean University lessons to work independently to complete the activity requirements for each badge on the Think Like a Programmer Journey. Click on the badges below to see the suggested coding activities for completing the badge.
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. Troops in the council can schedule the Boolean Girl team to visit your troop meeting to run STEM projects to help complete the requirements for the Think like a Programmer Journey.
As proud partners of the Nation's Capital Council Boolean Girl is thrilled to announce that starting in the Fall of 2019 we will be available to participate in your troop meetings or other meetings and help your Girl Scouts earn their Think Like a Programmer Journey.
How it works.
Fill in a request form for the date and time of interest and we will contact you to arrange the details. On the agreed upon day our instructors will show up and run all the activities related to the Think Like a Programmer badge. We even leave you with ideas for completing the badge by doing the Take Action requirements.
What will we do?
We come to you. Our mission is to engage girls in STEM specifically the Technology and Engineering aspects of STEM so we want to make it as easy as possible.
At the meeting we will complete hands on coding projects that satisfy the requirements for each age/rank of the Journey. While you can earn these badges with offline activities, with our help the girls get to put hands on keyboards and learn to code.
What is required?
Not much, a minimum of five girls, a place to meet with table and chairs. We provide everything else. We don't need internet access or electricity. We've been running after-school clubs for years and we are experts at rapidly setting up and running a fun event.
How much does it cost? How long does it take?
It costs $35 per girl. We need a minimum of 90 minutes but 2 hours is better.
