GSCO Cookie Box Innovation Power by Arrow Electronics
THIS PROGRAM IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR MEMBERS OF GIRL SCOUTS OF COLORADO
Making the world a better place starts with innovation but discovering and developing the capacity for innovation can be challenging. Girl Scouts in Colorado are ready to accept that challenge as part of our new GSCO Cookie Box Innovation Challenge powered by Arrow Electronics! In this patch program, Girl Scout Cadettes (6-8 grade), Seniors (9-10 grade), and Ambassadors (11-12 grade) will learn what innovation is, how to tap the innovation potential in themselves, and how to turn their ideas into a solution to change the world.
Throughout the program, they will have the opportunity to learn from experts in innovation at Arrow Electronics and get advice on how to further their own designs. Cookie boxes come into play as we encourage Girl Scouts to use cookie cases, boxes, and other recyclable materials to build a prototype of their innovation.
Girl Scouts must either attend the live session or view the recorded sessions and complete the activities to earn the patch. Patches will be mailed after completion of the program.
Registration for the Arrow Electronics Innovator Fair will open in late August. The registration link on this event is for the GSCO patch program only.
