Girl Scouts of Maine offers various opportunities for science experiences for girls in grades K-12. Several badges that girls can work on individually or with their troops include naturalist (Bugs, Flowers, Trees, Sky, and Water), science and technology (Home Scientist and the Science of Happiness), investigation (including Senses and Special Agent), and innovation badges. Additionally, girls discover, connect, and take action on environmental issues through the It’s Your Planet – Love It! Journeys.
In addition to the badge and Journey program materials, girls throughout Maine can interact with one another and have hands-on science experiences. Girl Scouts of Maine has sponsored engineering events that are held in partnership with the University of Maine and the Society of Women Engineers as well as environmental science events with community collaborators throughout the state.
