A discussion at a 2011 APTA event on how educators, students and clinicians could better promote the field, sparked an idea to create Girl Scout badges that would promote awarness of the profression to young girls and their parents. In 2012, the Girl Scouts of Chesapeake Bay Council Owned Physical Therapy Badges were developed teaching 6-12 grades about healthy living through exercise while allowing them to investigate health profession, such as Physical Therapy, that utilize exercise for healing.
In 2013, the Explore the Magic of Motion Program was developed to help girls earn the badge and first successfully hosted by staff and Class of 2013 at University of Delaware's Clinic in Newark, DE. The University of Delaware Physical Therapy Program hosts this service learning event annually and the program has been well received at additional locations in New Jersey.
Explore the Magic of Motion Program has reached over 500 participants since its inception and grown to provide an interactive health and wellness learning experience, not only for scouts, but for health professionals.
