Welcome amateur astronomers! Here you'll find resources to help you make meaningful connections with Girl Scouts and help them earn their Space Science badges.

Girl Scouts of the USA offers Space Science badges for girls in kindergarten through twelfth-grade. Earning each badge includes an “observing” component, with troops encouraged to reach out to local astronomy clubs, so be aware that troop leaders may contact you to attend one of your club events. You can share your love of the sky as you help girls unleash their G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ potential! Learn about the Girl Scout Difference and how the Girl Scout Leadership Experience helps girls thrive.
