Juniors can earn their “Animal Habitats” badge as they learn about the places animals call home, or their “Flowers” badge as they enjoy the science and beauty of our native flora.

I want to share how fun it was to learn about the women in the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame. Knowing of all the accomplishments and contributions women have, is nothing but rewarding. Knowing that I like other girls (Girl Scout or not) have opportunities and potential to be as successful is many women before us.

NEW Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame and Girl Scout patch program

Update as of June 10, 2019: All of the FREE patches have been claimed. You can still earn this patch and purchase it at the GSCO Retail Shop.

“The Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame is excited to partner with Girl Scouts of Colorado to provide girls across the state an opportunity to learn the stories of women who have shaped our state and the nation’s history with courage, leadership, intelligence, and creativity. Girl Scouts are future female leaders of Colorado and the Hall of Fame recognizes and preserves the accomplishments of past and present Colorado women.”

  • M.L. Hanson, Founder of the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame

Girl Scouts of Colorado is thrilled to partner with the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame to launch a new patch program for all Girl Scouts in Colorado.

Girl Scouts of all ages can complete at least three of the seven activities listed on the online instructions within 12 months and earn the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame (CWHF) patch. Once activities are completed, troop leader, parent, or guardian should fill out the online notification form and patches will be mailed to an address of their choosing. The first 200 Girl Scouts who complete the program will receive a FREE patch.

All Girl Scouts should take the Girl Scout Internet Safety Pledge before starting their online research.

After your Girl Scout/Girl Scout troop has earned this patch, share your experience on the Girl Scouts of Colorado blog!

Special thanks to M.L. Hanson, Jill Tietjen, Beth Barela, Tiffany Critz, and the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame for developing this patch program for all Girl Scouts in Colorado.

Girls in STEM: Snow Safety and Snow Science at Keystone Science School

Submitted by Dave Miller

Mountain Communities

Keystone

Keystone Science School is offering a program specifically designed for girls, highlighting careers within snow safety and snow science. Girls in STEM, which runs February 8 – 10, 2019, will teach girls about snow science and a wide variety of careers within snow safety and snow science. The program is open to any girl currently in third – eighth grade. Participating girls will first learn how to cross country ski, which will turn into their mode of transportation for the remainder of the weekend. They will then learn about many aspects of snow science, including the many forms of snow grains, snow metamorphosis, and the many layers within our snowpack. Girls will be digging snow pits and learning how to analyze the snowpack by identifying layers and all the variables which create a stable or unstable snow pack such as the slope, aspect, and different weather events which have influenced the snowpack.

Throughout the weekend, girls will also learn about careers within snow safety and snow science from female professionals working in the field and known to the program as STEM Mentors. Keystone Science School is partnering with Arapahoe Basin Ski Area. The featured STEM Mentor is Lindsay Wiebold, who is on the Arapahoe Basin Ski Patrol. The program will also be supported by ski area snow safety technicians, and member from a local avalanche dog team. These STEM mentors are the cornerstone of the program because girls won’t just learn about various professions, but also the barriers each STEM mentor experienced when entering the field. The barriers can be gender-based through their educational and professional experience, but also any other limiting factor and how each individual STEM mentor handled that barrier.

Program Details

Location: Keystone Science School, 1053 Soda Ridge Road, Keystone, Colorado 80435

Dates and Time: February 8 – 10, 2019

Cost: $175 per participant (includes food, equipment, lodging, and  instruction). Scholarships are available.
