The Girl Scouts announced 30 new badges that will help equip girls with the leadership skills needed to deal with "key 21st century issues," including several science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)-related badges.

The new badges will be available for girls ages five through 18, and are funded by various organizations directly related to the relevant issues. For example, Palo Alto Networks is backing the cybersecurity badge, and the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Science Mission Directorate is funding the space science badge.

The Girl Scouts organization is “uniquely positioned” to address the “increasingly strong voice of young people who want to change the world and the lack of women in leadership positions in the United States,” according to Girl Scouts CEO Sylvia Acevedo.
