100 Years of Guiding in NSW

100 years of Guiding in NSW

Girl Guides NSW was officially formed in 1920, and are celebrating 100 years of Guiding in 2020. It is a great achievement for the organisation and for past and present members. This will be celebrated with their entire community of Guides, volunteers and supporters.

Girl Guiding NSW recognises that their past provides them with the foundations to shape the present and in turn the future. Girl Guiding NSW will always do their best to empower girls and young women and give them a place to grow. For more information see the centenary celebrations.

Science and Technology Challenge

Guide Science and Technology Badge

There are many different badges that participation in JOTA / JOTI can contribute to, but the Explore a Challenge: Science and Technology is perhaps the most relevant. Choose four challenges from these suggestions that can be easily done during JOTA and JOTI.

Increase your computer skills:

Check out communication methods and use one to get in touch with a friend:

Create something powered by air, electricity or water:

Promote Guiding using technical equipment:

Discover how nature works by investigating a natural land form.

Create your own challenge to widen your understanding of science and technology.

Amateur Radio Foundation License

In 2005, the Australian Communications and Media Authority, ACMA, introduced an Amateur Radio Foundation license, targetted at a younger and less technical audience. The Foundation License is going to be the perfect license for Guides to get started in Amateur Radio.
