Cybersecurity field trip

Submitted by Rebecca Greco

Broomfield

Brownie Troop 65575 took a field trip to the Apple Store at Flatirons Mall and earned their “Cybersecurity Basics” and “Cybersecurity Safeguard” badges. They learned about the internet and the importance of protecting themselves online.

At their next meeting, the Brownies expanded on the things they learned by working together to design castles. The girls had very imaginative ideas of ways to protect their castles and we talked about why it’s important to protect themselves online.

We’re excited to dig deeper into cybersecurity when they earn their “Cybersecurity Investigator” badge!

Troop 65742 visited the Children’s Museum of Denver earlier this month to work on a variety of badges, patches, Journeys, etc. Girl Scouts were able to do many activities toward their various “Superhero” patches and “Science” Journeys, such as cooking, fire trucks, science (bubbles and balls), break dancing, vet role play, camping/wilderness role play, climbing the tower, etc. We had a blast and everyone learned aspects of teamwork.

Brownies journey through Wonderland

Berthoud

On November 3, 2018, 32 Brownies from seven different troops took the marvelous “Journey Through Wonderland,” hosted by Troop 70700 of Berthoud. The Cadettes designed, organized, and led this “Journey in a Day,” with whimsical activities based on Lewis Carroll’s original story.

The Brownies earned their “World of Girls” Journey by telling their own stories, practicing teamwork, getting creative, and making healthy choices.

They topped off the day by creating Kindness Cards to distribute in their own communities as a Take Action project. Imagining what would happen if the Queen of Hearts sent her card soldiers to spread kindness, each Brownie will share their Kindness Cards in their own communities.

While the Brownies said they loved all the activities of the day, the favorites were definitely the Mad Hatter Hat Station and Caterpillar teamwork challenge.

Each station was designed and led by Cadettes, who worked through the challenges of planning the event and gained confidence in their own leadership abilities.

Troop 70700 is hosting “Journey Through Wonderland” again in December (already sold out), and is planning additional sessions for 2019. To be placed on an interest list for upcoming sessions, please email Troop 70700 leader Jen Rotar at rotarjen@msn.com.

Brownies learn the importance of cybersecurity and STEM

The internet and media are a daily part of our Girl Scouts’ lives and we felt it was important to arm them with the knowledge and understanding of how to stay safe while engaging with these sources. This is why we selected to pursue the cybersecurity badges and patches for our troop! Please enjoy the story about defending our castles, but tread carefully, you may find an alligator, a bear trap, or a grenade disguised as candy…

One high-energy afternoon, a bunch of Girl Scouts in Troop 65709
eagerly awaited the starting tune to learn how to keep themselves safe
in cyberland, all while running a race from alligators, bears, and secret predators.

They brainstormed and created elaborate defenses to keep out enemies pretenses, creating trap doors, moats, secret entrances, invisible castles, and candy tricks.

They discussed and debated the best shields and learned how it related  to keeping them safe in daily practice fields.

These G.I.R.L.s are armed and ready to take on the world and be safe when it comes to cyberland!

The girls came up with very creative ideas on defending their castles, family, and friends. They learned about how to layer defenses and how that relates to online defenses with passwords and safeguards they use every day. It was a great start to arming them with the knowledge to keep themselves safe while online! Our troop is pursing the cybersecurity trifecta of badges: Basics, Safeguards, and Investigator.

By completing this activity, the girls will earn this special cybersecurity patch. Learn how to earn yours.

Dancers will be exposed to the specific techniques as well as improvisation and dance concepts. Brownies can work on the requirements for the “Dancer” badge.
