Raytheon and Girl Scouts of the USA
Girl Scouts of the USA, Driving Diversity in Stem
Women make up half of the college-educated workforce, but only 11 percent of the cybersecurity workforce. Girl Scouts of the USA and Raytheon are bridging the gap by turning girls' interests into career aspirations. Together, we are preparing girls to explore computer science careers and realize their potential to help make the world a better, safer place.
Girl Scouts today, cyber leaders tomorrow
The Girl Scouts Cyber Challenge is Girl Scouts of the USA’s first-ever national STEM challenge event. By solving a hypothetical ransomware attack on a moon base, thousands of girls across 10 U.S. cities cultivated key cybersecurity skills with support from Raytheon volunteers and mentors.
When girls think like programmers
GSUSA’s first-of-its-kind nationwide computer science program, "Think Like a Programmer" Journey, encourages girls to pursue careers in the computer sciences. In 2018, 78 percent of participants reported learning more about what computer scientists do and 93 percent learned to identify algorithms.
Making STEM real, rewarding and fun
Girl Scouts embrace unique opportunities to build collaborative thinking, leadership skills and cyber knowledge in real-world settings. For instance, we welcomed Girl Scouts from Central Maryland to our Cyber Operations, Development and Evaluation (CODE) Center—our state-of-the-art cybersecurity range—to solve the case of a tainted cookie recipe.
