Abstract: New, national Girl Scout space science badges were just released, and the astronomy community will be a vital part of their success! These badges, funded by the NASA Science Mission Directorate, encourage Girl Scouts to engage with experts in their community. Discover best practices for working with Girl Scouts and explore the badge content areas. This interactive session will focus on the new Daisy (K-1), Brownie (2-3), and Junior (4-5) level badges. Whether you're with an astronomy club, planetarium, science center, or university, get ready to welcome young girls into the space science field.
