NEW YORK -- With the Girl Scouts’ first-ever national digital platform, Digital Cookie 1.0, nearly 160,000 scouts sold cookies via website or mobile app in 2014. Now, the new Digital Cookie 2.0 provides scouts this cookie season with a more robust, hands-on and entertaining learning experience, including an enhanced cookie website with fun quizzes, games, videos and other activities that offer girls opportunities to learn budgeting and resource allocation using a “spend, save and give” model.
Girls will also be able to earn all age-appropriate Cookie Business badges through the platform while exploring ways to help others by investing their earnings back into their communities and practicing Internet safety. Digital Cookie 2.0 is the leading “multichannel” entrepreneurial program for girls in grades K–12, and each girl’s experience is customized to her age level.
The Digital Cookie 2.0 platform is made possible by Dell and Visa.
