The Irish Girl Guides and Engineers Ireland have teamed up to develop an education initiative that allows Guides and Brownies to become Guide Engineers and to earn a specifically designed Engineering Badge.
There are two engineering badges - one for Brownies (aged 7 to 9), and one for Guides (aged 10 to 13). The badges are encouraging young girls to work through a variety of engineering projects while teaming up to tackle real-life engineering challenges.
This year, STEPS Engineers Ireland is calling on Brownies and Girl Guide nationwide to take the STEPS Engineering Challenge to become Ireland’s Top Guide and Brownie Engineers.
All Brownies and Guides are welcome to take the STEPS Engineering Challenge. Completing the challenge takes between 1.5 and three hours.
