Are you ready for cookie season? Girl Scouts across the country are once again kicking their cookie sales into high gear, and one of the ways they are selling these favorite treats just might change the world.
With Girl Scouts’ first-ever national digital platform, Digital Cookie 1.0 gave girls the opportunity to dig deeper into the economics of cookie selling. By bringing twenty-first-century technology to the classic piece of Americana that is the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls use these basic building blocks that boosts her confidence and helps her see the relevance of STEM skills through “learning by doing” in her everyday life.
Girls from GSACPC are excited to participate in Digital Cookies 2.0 for the first time during the 2016 cookie season. This will give girls a fun, hands-on and entertaining learning experience including more ways to connect with their customers, forecast troop earnings and analyze sales data.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches the five essential life skills of goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics, and we are excited to incorporate a new layer of twenty-first-century skills to ensure this generation is STEM savvy and ready to take the modern working world by storm.
