Attack of the 50 ft. Woman

BY LANA BERGMANN
@ VOL 109 ON DEC 04, 2013

One way to see it: Lana Bergmann is 50 ft. tall, and terrorizes the citizens of Japan on a daily basis. Another way to look at it is that she's just misunderstood. Japan's infrastructure, architecture, and culture occassionally clashes with her height. Here Lana discusses the difficulties of being a tall woman in country statistically on the shorter side.

Being Young in Kabul

BY SAMINA ANSARI
@ VOL 30 ON JUN 13, 2016

BY ALLISON MARTINSON
@ VOL 22 ON APR 13, 2017

When you think about Girl Scouts, you probably don't think about Juliette Gordon Low, the hard-of-hearing inventor that helped bring scouting to the United States. You're probably thinking about cookies. Cookies are a Girl Scout's first introduction to entrepreneurship. Allison Martinson introduces them to engineering. At Girl Scouts of Wisconsin - Badgerland, Girl Scouts are learning to use their dreams and ideas to make, build, design, create, dissect, and analyze. Badgerland's program introduces girls to code, robotics, entomology, and rocketry, connects girls to inspiring adult volunteers, and encourages girls to use STEM to make the world a better place.
