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.
