(CNN) -

The Girl Scouts want to see more women in STEM careers. The organization announced today, it's adding 23 new badges related to science, technology, engineering, math and outdoors. 

Now Girl Scouts can earn badges through activities like designing model race cars, writing code, programming robots and going on environmentally conscious camping trips. Girl Scouts' CEO told CNN that the new experiences are meant to address "the lack of exposure many girls have to STEM." 

Last month, the organization added cybersecurity badges, which will be available over the next two years to girls in kindergarten through 12th grade.
