Digital Scotland Challenge

Help girls discover their digital future with the country’s first ever digital challenge badge!

We’ve teamed up with Skills Development Scotland and Education Scotland to bring you the Digital Scotland Challenge badge! It’s been designed to empower girls across all sections to make the most of the opportunities technology offers.

Why’s the Digital Scotland Challenge badge important?

Research from Girlguiding’s Girls’ Attitudes Survey shows that one in two girls still think STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects are more for boys and only 37% of girls said they would consider a job in tech.

The Digital Scotland Challenge badge aims to change this by teaching girls about computers, algorithms, creativity and design as well as highlighting career options in the industry.

How does it work?

Girls from all sections will have the chance to get to grips with technology by getting stuck in to fun challenges from mixing beats and animating adventures to designing wearable tech and creating a robot maze.
