Skill Building Badge: Home Scientist


By paying careful attention during experiments, scientists learn new things - even if they've done the test before. That means you don't have to grow up to be a scientist. You're a scientist every time you do an experiment! In this badge, find out where science has been hiding in your own home.


The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting can help you learn about science by following these 5 steps:

  1. Be a kitchen chemist
  2. Create static electricity
  3. Dive into density
  4. Make something bubble up
  5. Play with Science

Each step of the way you need to complete one of three activities. When you have earned this badge, you'll be able to see science all around you.  


Get started on your Home Science badge today - refer to your Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting for complete instructions and activities.

Get Moving Troop 408 

On April 22, 2012, at the Dig This® Event, Troop 408 recycled approximately 1875 aluminum cans, 30 bundles of newspapers, magazines, a large garbage bag filled with Christmas wrappings, paper and junk mail, and lots of cardboard, including Girl Scout cookie boxes. Great job girls! Their efforts are part of the Get Moving Journey. The girls also kept track of their reusable bottle usage and started carrying a  reusable tote bag, as well as participated in Earth Hour replacing their lights with energy efficient bulbs.
