Our Scout Programs
Create a sea-worthy vessel as you set sail with nautical engineering! Build and test a boat powered by potential and kinetic energy. Then try changing specific variables to improve speed, buoyancy and stability. This program will help Girl Scout Juniors complete the Mechanical Engineering: Paddle Boat Design Challenge badge.
Discover how science is used to solve real crimes! Watch as a classroom is transformed into a crime lab for this exciting exploration of the fundamentals of forensics. This program will help Girl Scouts Juniors complete the Detective badge and Cadettes complete the Special Agent badge.
Learn to control the air surfaces and build your own loop-flying stunt plane. Become familiar with the forces of flight and the functional elements of multiple plane designs. You’ll be an Amelia Earhart after this class!This program will help Girl Scout Brownies complete the Mechanical Engineering Fling Flyer Design Challenge Badge.
Learn about the amazing chemical process of eating and digestion, make Mad Science putty with household ingredients and play with static electricity! This program will help Girl Scout Brownies complete the Home Scientist badge.
Did you know that many inventions happen by accident? Take a hands-on approach to learn that anyone, of any age, can be an inventor. This program will help Girl Scout Brownies earn their Inventor badge, and Girl Scout Juniors complete steps toward earning the Product Designer badge.
Get excited about the process of scientific discovery with wooden cars. Build your own Mad Science drag racer using concepts learned in the class. This program will help Girl Scout Brownies complete the Mechanical Engineering Race Car Design Challenge badge.
Planets, Moons & Stars
For centuries, astronomers have studied the skies to learn about the stars. Now it’s your turn to take your place in the grand orbit of our solar system, circling the sun and weaving through rocky planets and gas giants, while creating solar and lunar eclipses. This program will help Girl Scout Daisies, Brownies and Juniors complete steps toward earning the Space Science badges.
Explore the dynamics of rocket flight! Race a balloon rocket and design your own car engine as you learn about thrust, gravity, drag, and lift. Take part in a safe, NASA style launching of a model rocket that soars into the air and returns to earth by parachute. See the principles of propulsion at work and build your very own Skyblazer rocket to take home!
