Girl Scouts of America: New badge in cybersecurity launched

Girl Scouts of America has said it is offering girls as young as five a badge in cybersecurity.

 

It is part of an effort to get more young girls into science (S), technology (T), engineering (E) and maths (M) – or ‘stem’ subjects.

 

The scheme launched in Silicon Valley, California and it’s the first of its kind in the States.

 

Silicon Valley is famous around the world for being an area where lots of tech companies, like Facebook, are based.

 

In July 2018, Girlguiding in the UK released a range of new badges, including badges for blogging and vlogging.

 

Take the quiz below to see if you can work out which of the badges are real and which are made up!
