Junior aged Girl Scout troops and individual scouts can earn the new GSUSA STEM Mechanical Engineering Balloon Car badge using this video! GE Aviation Engineers will guide you step by step through activities that meet badge requirements. Work “alongside” a troop from Mason, Ohio as they earn the badge. All materials needed are described in the video. Troop leaders and parents (of boys or girls) are encouraged to use this video to engage our next generation of technologists!

Please provide feedback on your experience, and how many girls completed the activities to earn the badge here:

GE Aviation is a strong supporter of increasing the number of women in STEM fields. GE launched #balancetheequation and since then GE Aviation employees around the globe have been dedicated to creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace. An important component of #balancetheequation is community outreach, and getting girls excited about entering a STEM field.

As part of GE’s commitment to engaging girl in STEM is an initiative called “Year of the Girl”. GE Aviation partners with Girl Scouts of Western Ohio to bring together STEM professionals and girls in the Cincinnati area. Girls do fun STEM activities in after school programs, day camps and events at GE. Girls work alongside great role models employed at Aviation. This video is an extension to reach girls outside the Cincinnati area!
