We Want YOU to Test the New Citizen Science Journey for Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors!

We’ve teamed up with Girl Scouts of the USA and SciStarter to test the NEW Citizen Science Journey for Cadettes, Seniors, Ambassadors, and multi-level troops in grades 6-12!

We are looking for troops to volunteer their time to try out the citizen science journey for Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors. Multi-level troops are welcome to apply all girls in the troop are in grades 6-12. Your troop has the opportunity to impact program materials that are going to be used across the country next year!

We aim to include volunteers with a broad range of experiences (no STEM experience necessary!) and diverse make up.

Why participate?

Your girls will…      

  • Be the first to use new STEM Journey material with fun and engaging activities.
  • Develop communication skills through providing feedback on the new program(s).
  • Help your troop earn a $100 Amazon gift card to support troop-related program expenses.
  • Help develop new STEM Program, and be part of history!

What’s Involved?

Each participating troop will be required to complete the NEW 6-12 Citizen Science Journey (3 Outdoor STEM activity meetings and a Take Action project) between November 19, 2018 and February 4, 2019 and to participate in our pilot research and experience documentation.
