Girl Scouts “Coding for Good”

Girl Scouts and DigiPen Academy

DigiPen Academy finds it important to bring STEM to our community. Through partnerships like the Girl Scouts, we are able to provide more of these types of opportunities. Because of the successful Girl Scouts Summer Workshops we hosted this past summer, we have been able to carry that program into the fall with the “Coding for Good” Workshops.

“Coding for Good” provides Girl Scouts opportunities to earn badges in STEM. Through different programming exercises like following instructions, creating algorithms, and building apps girls will learn technical skills in a fun environment. We will work on badge requirements using loops, conditionals, game design and user-centered data.

DigiPen Academy is excited to offer these new learning experiences to Girl Scouts of Western Washington. Our current programs are offered to the Junior Girls Scouts and Cadette Girl Scouts. We hope to grow our program into other Girl Scout age groups.
