About Girl Scouts & Girl Guides

As mentioned on the History of the Tech4Terranova Project page, the original web site was built by Becca McIver for her Girl Scout Gold Award project. She is a 12 year member of Girl Scouts of the United States of America and wanted to share exactly what Scouts/Guides are all about, and how it has led her and many other girls to equally wonderful projects that help others world-wide.
