Girlguiding and Google have developed a new exciting challenge named Google’s Digital Adventure. The challenge will provide the opportunity to develop new skills and an understanding of technology through offline tasks like creating algorithms using storyboards, and making robots to solve common problems. And of course, every girl completing the challenge will be rewarded with a special Google badge.
This comes after Girlguiding’s Girls’ Attitudes Survey 2017 found 30% of girls aged 11-16 think ICT/computing is more for boys and only 37% would consider doing a job in technology.
Girlguiding Bath will be running a session at Bath Digital Festival allowing girls to earn their Google Digital Challenge badge. To be awarded the badge, girls will learn about algorithms - the instructions that make computer programmes work - and why they are important for coding and computers. The girls will have the opportunity to create their own algorithms and put their own set of instructions into action by creating storyboards for everyday tasks such as getting dressed in the morning or making breakfast. Girls will also be challenged to design and create their own robots to solve common problems.
Suitable for girls aged 7-10
