The Girls’ Energy Conservation Corps (GECCo) is an energy conservation program for Junior and Cadette Girl Scouts funded by the National Science Foundation and developed by TERC in collaboration with the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts and 360KID.

When girls join GECCo, they have fun as they learn how they use and waste energy, how their energy use directly connects them to climate change, and how to change their energy-use behaviors. GECCo girls become empowered to act as agents of change by communicating with others about climate change and energy conservation. They build skills with new media, impact their community positively, and increase their individual and collective sense of effectiveness in making a real difference.
