This recorded online workshop focused on Growth Mindset in girls and the new 2019 Space Science badges for Girl Scouts - Cadettes (grades 6-8), Seniors (grades 9-10) and Ambassadors (grades 11-12). Growth Mindset is a way to connect to our learning side, where we can make mistakes and use different learning strategies to grow and improve. Presenters explored ways to engage and encourage girls in STEM, and how to be more inclusive more generally. They also explored the newly released Girl Scout Space Science Badges, the Girl Scouts’ STEM strategy, and ways science museums can successfully engage girls in Earth and space science. Online Workshop was recorded 10-8-2019.
