Made with Code & Maker Day

Girl Scouts is connecting girls to careers in computer technology. We have partnered with Google to offer girls an exciting new initiative, Made with Code, to change how girls think about coding— and inspire them to explore careers in computer science. Play coding games, meet mentors and makers, learn about events, and find resources through the Made with Code link on our website: www.gscnc.org/madewithcode.html.

I can’t wait to...

be a Maker What is a Girl Scout Maker?

Girl Scout Makers like making things they’re excited about—whether it’s a craft, a piece of furniture, a robot, or a computer program. Makers like to tinker, take things apart, and try and put them back together again in new ways. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. It doesn’t matter!

Help your girls become Girl Scout Makers • Register your troop to participate in the first Nation’s Capital Maker Day in April at the Annual Meeting • Go to www.gscnc.org/GSMaker.html for updates on Maker resources and ways to be involved • Join the Maker Steering Committee and help make Maker happen • Follow us on Facebook.com/GSCNC to get updates on our Maker event

Program News Spotlight GEICO Art of Independence GSCNC’s and GEICO’s Art of Independence program will empower Girl Scouts to discover skills that will prepare them for a positive, healthy, and independent future by earning a life-skills badge. You have two ways to participate: Earn a practical life-skills badge at your level with your troop. Then let us know which badge you earned between October 2014 and July 2015 by filling out a survey at www.surveymonkey.com/s/HC3Q3FZ and we will send you a FREE GEICO patch while patch supplies last! Or Attend one of the Art of Independence events hosted by Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital. There will be five events offered throughout the Council. They will be advertised on the GSCNC website and our publications as they are scheduled. For more information, go to www.gscnc.org/artofindependence.html.

The Life-Skills Badges are: My Great Day - The My Great Day badge teaches Girl Scout Brownies (grades 2-3) that life is more fun when it’s running smoothly and encourages them to be organized—so there’s more time to play! Independence - The Independence badge encourages Girl Scout Juniors (grades 4-5) to start taking care of themselves, learn their capabilities, and show their families they are learning how to be responsible. Topics include: transportation smarts, breaking bad habits, taking care of clothes, and helping around the house. Babysitter - The Babysitter badge teaches Girl Scout Cadettes (grades 6-8) how to be well-prepared, responsible and effective babysitters. Girls learn about how kids develop, how to focus on play, how to find employers, and what to do when challeges arise. Car Care - By fulfilling the requirements for the Car Care badge, Girl Scout Seniors (grades 9-10) learn basic car care maintenance, vehicle safety, safe driving practices, what to do in an emergency, and how to drive for a greener world.
