The CRC's Dr Cindy Kerawalla worked with a group of Girl Guides to develop a new national Go For It! badge called Streets Ahead. To gain their badge, Guides carry out their own research into a local topic of their choice.
Between May 2012 to February 2013, 6500 badges have been awarded to Guides across the UK. We are delighted that so many young people have had this opportunity to learn how to be researchers and to contribute to their local communities.
