[Full STEAM ahead Cookie Patch]
Just created this awesome STEAM inspired patch for a wonderful Girl Scout Leader and her Service Unit. This patch is for their upcoming STEAM Cookie Rally Challenge. What a great opportunity to inspire girls to discover all aspects of STEAM as they relate to the Cookie Business, STEAM is everywhere and an essential tool any girl at any level can benefit from. Be creative! There are so many ideas out there, I've listed a few. But I promise you there are tons of ideas out there. If you like the 2nd design you don't necessarily have to make it about STEAM. Just a thought.
