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.
