Complete the Digital Challenge and earn your badge!
Did you know that because you are a Girl Guide, when you complete any or all of the Commissioner’s Digital challenges outside school, you earn one or all of the limited-edition cloth badges below?
The ‘Speak Robot’ Badge is for Guides aged 7 to 12 years. All you require is a laptop or PC with an internet connection and you’re good to go! You will have completed the Challenge when you finish any four of the Learn to Speak Robot activities on offer. Each activity takes about an hour to complete, but this will depend upon your skill level. There are hundreds of activities to choose from, but don’t worry, if you are new to coding, a Beginner’s Guide is provided.
The ‘Space to Dream’ Badge challenges you to design a toy or gadget for a child your age who is moving to Mars. You will use the five step ‘Design Thinking’ process to help your create your design. You can choose to create your design using the free 3D design tool made available by Makers Empire, or hand draw your design onto a ‘MAKE IT!’ Design Sheet.
The ‘Zoom Out’ Badge challenges you to complete just one ‘Systems Thinking’ activity on offer.
