Made with Code

In the past year, more than 64,000 girls participated in Made with Code—have you? There’s still time! Google Made with Code is an interactive program where girls can learn basic coding through several online coding projects, from watering flowers to lighting a dress to making a Yeti dance.


The program is a fantastic introduction for girls to the world of coding, and a great enhancement to our council’s STEM offerings! Explore Made with Code through Girl Scouts’ special link: http://goo.gl/aVSCRP and have your girls counted towards reaching Girl Scouts’ national goal of 240,000 girls who Made With Code!

Fantastic New Adventures

At Girl Scouts, you’re going to have tons of fun, make new friends, and go on fantastic new adventures.


You’re also going to get the chance to do big things. Our program centers on something called the Girl Scout Leadership Experience—a collection of activities and experiences you’ll have as you earn badges, sell cookies, go on exciting trips, explore the outdoors, do Take Action projects that make a difference, and more.
Put simply, in Girl Scouts you will:
Discover.
You’ll find out who you are, what you care about, and what your talents are.

Connect.
Collaborate with other people, locally and globally, to make a difference in the world.

Take Action.
Do something to make the world a better place.

With Girl Scouts, you’ll do more than you ever thought you could, dream bigger dreams than you ever imagined, and — oh, yeah — change the world. Bet you didn’t think rock climbing or selling cookies would help you do all that, did you?
