Spring 2018

Women of Courage, April 14, 2018

Can you name a woman in history who has inspired you? Powerful, intelligent, talented, and brave: These are just a few of the words that describe the women in history. A great way to learn about these fascinating women is to put your feet in their shoes. Let’s explore what it was like to live in another time as a girl from the past – a woman of courage! Badge: Playing the Past (Juniors).

1 – 3 p.m. $13 per Girl Scout; adults free.

Hands-On Habitats, May 12, 2018

Observe and explore the characteristics of animals. Learn about their distinct environments and habitats and what they need to thrive. Let’s check out what some animals in Florida do to survive on a daily basis. We’ll also make a Toad House, or a bird supply station, and maybe plant some butterfly- or bee-friendly plants. We’ll also learn how we can make our own backyards more animal-friendly and how we can live in harmony with nature. Badge: Animal Habitat (Juniors).

1 – 3 p.m. $13 per Girl Scout; adults free.

Spin It, Roll It, Make It! May 12, 2018

Do you like games? Are you a competitive player or just a leisurely participant? We’ll look at why some games become boring quickly while others remain fun for years, and also learn how games serve as powerful learning tools. Finally, we’ll have a great time inventing a new game that not only will be fun to play but also will be used by the History Center in the Education Department. Badge: Making Games (Brownies).

1 – 3 p.m. $13 per Girl Scout; adults free.
