Great Space Challenge


<< Back to Scouting Events & Activities in NOVA


Girl Scouts of all ages are invited to join the national Girl Scout Great Space Challenge!

Girls who have a love of the stars and a view of the sky (from the great outdoors or their bedroom window), will love earning a limited-edition Discover Space patch (patch available for purchase online)! Telescopes and other scientific equipment aren’t necessary — just curiosity and creativity! The challenge launched on July 10, 2020, and ends on August 31, 2020

Based on your Scout’s grade level, they’ll be asked to complete a certain number of activities from this activity sheet. Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors (grades K–5) should complete one from each category, while Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassador (grades 6-12) should complete two from each category.
