Patches & Program Boxes

Learn by doing with our STEM program boxes and patch resources!

Program boxes are filled with hands-on activity materials and instructions, designed to introduce girls to the science and technology we interact with every day. Using program box materials, girls collaborate to explore everything from animal habitats to engineering with wind power. Troops, groups, and individuals can borrow a program box from the council to make a Journey connection, earn a skill-building patch, or just have fun with something new.
