While using the tinkering lab kits provided, girls use their imagination to solve different types of engineering challenges like creating a machine that can beat an egg or creating a machine that can write.
Girls learn about insulators and conductors, create a piano drawing then use scratch programing to bring words to a drawing, create a switch, and attempt to play the game flappy birds.
In this session, girls earn parts of Girl Scouts’ robotic badges by learning about robots and how they function. Girls will get to code and run the robots thru mazes.
Here, girls learn what a binary number is, how to transform their birthday into a binary number, and make a binary number bracelet. They will work with programs and learn about Blockly before creating their own emoji to take home on a thumb drive.
In this session, girls complete several small experiments while learning about density, chemical reactions, polymers, and hypothesis.
Projects in this session are offered by age and include building a playground or a coaster car that goes down an incline, is wind powered, self-propelled, or catapults marshmallow flyers. This session is based off the Think like an Engineer Journey series.
In this program, girls earn requirements toward Girl Scout space and science badges. Activities range from a solar walk, creating a planisphere, creating a piece of galaxy art, turning their name into a constellation, learning space facts, and exploring the night sky through telescopes and binoculars.
Girls complete various experiment in physics to include hangtime and buoyancy.
Girls learn about cells and organisms by preparing a slide using onion skins and cheek swabs to view under a microscope and completing a fun, hands-on animal cell re-creation using food.
