Brownies earn cybersecurity patch

Submitted by Amber Biviano

Parker

Our girls were excited to earn their first cybersecurity patch. The Palo Alto-created activity was a simple and fun way to begin a discussion with our Brownies about layers of security. Starting with the creation of our “secure castles,”  we then moved into digital/cyber security with our phones, computers, tablets, etc.

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

Earn a FREE cybersecurity patch

Calling all Girl Scout Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors! Here’s your chance to earn a special cybersecurity patch from Girl Scouts of the USA.

Step One

Choose the cybersecurity activity appropriate for your Girl Scout level as listed in this PDF:

CybersecurityPatch_FacilitatorGuide

These activities are from the Daisy, Brownie, and Junior cybersecurity badges. If you choose to swap out another activity, we highly recommend that you use one from Badge 1: Cybersecurity Basics, since that badge teaches foundational concepts that are built on in badges 2 and 3.

Step Two

Complete the activity and take lots of photos/videos.

Step Three

Share your story and photos from the activity using the Share Your Stories form: www.gscoblog.org/share 

Be sure to include what you learned about cybersecurity and why it is so important, along with any plans you might have to earn another STEM or cybersecurity badge.

Watch this video by a troop of Girl Scout Juniors who earned this special patch.

Once your story and photos have been received, GSCO Public Relations Director AnneMarie Harper will contact you regarding the number of patches you need and where they should be mailed. Patches will be distributed on a first come, first-serve basis.

Questions? Email AnneMarie Harper at annemarie.harper@gscolorado.org.
