Girl Scouts Introduce Game Design Merit Badge, One Up Boy Scouts With Software Requirement

Supergirly

Our ultimate goal is to create a STEM-aligned video game badge for the Girl Scouts of the United States of America. Creating this badge will get young girls excited in technology and science and let them know that they, too, can have a career in the video game industry. — Amy Allison, vice president at Women in Games International.

The Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles and Women in Games International are teaming up to develop requirements for a game developer badge for scouts. The Boy Scouts introduced their badge earlier this year, but the Girl Scouts version seeks to specifically focus on video game development rather than a more general focus on games of all kinds.
