Girl Scouts earn NEW space science badges with Lockheed Martin

More than 100 Colorado Girl Scouts in grades 6–12 earned NEW STEM badges with the help of Lockheed Martin employees on Sunday, October 6, 2019 at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum, one of the region’s premier aerospace museums.

These Girl Scouts are among the first in Colorado to earn three NEW space science badges, which were among the 42 badges released by Girl Scouts of the USA in July. Cadettes (grades 6–8) earned the “Space Science Researcher” badge by learning about the properties of light and how we use it to make discoveries about the Universe and space science. Seniors (grades 9 and 10) earned the “Space Science Expert” badge by gaining a deeper understanding of the Universe– her place in it and how light is used to make discoveries about it. Ambassadors (grades 11 and 12) earned the “Space Science Master” badge by discovering how they can be a part of NASA now and in the future. Girl Scouts also had the opportunity to network with female Lockheed Martin employees and learn about high school internships.

A special thanks to CBS4/KCNC-TV and Fox31/KDVR-TV for joining us for this special event and sharing the story with their viewers! Media Stars Alison, Diana, and Tessa did an AWESOME job representing GSCO in interviews about the event.
