Patch of the Month
STEM and Outdoor Challenges
In the past, Girl Scouts of Alaska has created challenges for girls to explore the outdoors through outdoor activity, observing wildlife, and experiencing the natural wonders of Alaska.
If you have not already completed these challenges, we are bringing them back! This is a great opportunity for girls and their families to explore the outdoors together safely.
We now have a new STEM Challenge patch, for all girls to work on. Activities for this patch are designed for girls to discover and build curiosity independently or with their families.
View the challenge here.

Natural Resources Patch Series
Along with Alaska Resource Education (ARE), GSAK has developed four new patches, the first of their kind in the nation: energy, minerals, forestry, and natural resources. The Natural Resource Patch Series is designed to teach girls about the resources and diversity of our state and its industries. ARE has adapted their most popular and innovative lessons for the patch requirements to get girls engaged in Alaska’s natural resources and the important role they play in our state. View the Natural Resources Patch Series booklet.
