Girl Scouts to create national computer science program for girls

By  | 

The Girl Scouts of America want to train the next generation of cyber-security and robotics professionals.

The organization is partnering with Raytheon to create a national computer science program for middle and high school girls.

It's part of an effort to diversify the science technology engineering and math, or STEM, workforce.

Earlier this year, the Girl Scouts Announcing it will start giving out STEM badges in 2018.
