There’s more to Girl Scouting than cookie selling. STEM is one of the newest badges of honor within the 107 year old organization. That’s just one message Mary Vitek delivered during HERWorld19.

The CEO of the San Jacinto Girl Scouts told a packed house of energy enthusiasts, the industry’s future is secure, in part because Girl Scout programs are keeping up with the changing times.

“We have a portfolio of badges where girls are able to pursue STEM from the age of five all the way up to age 18.”
