Abstract: Reaching for the Stars: NASA Science for Girls is a NASA SMD funded project. The SETI Institute and Co-Is, ARIES, ASP, U of AZ, Girl Scouts of the USA, GSRI, and GS NorCal, collaborated to develop age-appropriate astronomy activities for Girl Scout badges, enhancing STEM literacy for girls. K–5th grade badges will be released in August 2018, followed by 6th–12th grade badges in 2019. This talk highlights lessons learned as the SMEs and Girl Scout partners worked together via in person road-mapping meetings, and webinars to draft and test space science badges for an out of school environment.
