Everything You Need to Know About Girl Scouts’ Great Space Challenge

Girl Scouts are always aiming for the stars—literally!

Whether you’ve searched for shooting stars or found shapes in the clouds, you’ve probably already spent some time looking up at the sky. Now’s your chance to see it in a new way—like a space scientist does!

Follow these simple steps to participate in Girl Scouts’ Great Space Challenge.
  • The challenge launches on July 10 and ends on August 31, 2020. Can’t leave your home? No problem! You can view the night sky in the great outdoors or from the comfort of your own home. Telescopes and other scientific equipment aren’t necessary—just curiosity and creativity!
  • Based on your grade level, complete the required number of activities. Visit Girl Scouts at Home to get all the details for takeoff. From staying up late to watch a meteor shower to touring the sky through an app or Stellarium, there’s so much to experience!
  • Once you complete the activities for your grade level, you’ll unlock the new, limited-edition Discover Space patch available for purchase in the Girl Scout Shop. But wait! There’s more. We’ve hand-picked awesome space and STEM-related activities that are waiting for you here—be sure to check them out!

  • Connect with other Girl Scouts by taking to social media. Show us how you’re exploring space and completing your activities by tagging @girlscouts and using #GirlScoutsAtHome.
  • Hungry for more? We’ve got you. Earn Girl Scouts’ Space Science badges by venturing through the Solar System and beyond. Space is even bigger than you thought!
