Fall 2017

The Power in Your Pencil, Nov. 18, 2017

The pencil you use every day for school holds a wonderful secret: it’s a powerful tool! Pencils allow us to explore the world in many ways, including drawing – one of the best ways to get in touch with your creativity and imagination. Drawing allows you to explore your environment, create an imaginary world of your own, and create something that gives you a sense of pride. Click here to register. Badge: Drawing (Juniors).

10 a.m.– noon. $7 per Girl Scout; adults free.

Give a Girl a Brush! SOLD OUT! Nov. 18, 2017

One of the reasons art is so important is that it offers us a great way to let others see what we feel. In this workshop, we’ll explore how to do this by experimenting with unusual ways to make painted art. There is art in everyone. Discover the artist within you and practice your painting skills with a group of friends who have share your goals!

Go Go Gadget Girls! April 14, 2018

Let’s pretend we live in 1900. We would have lightbulbs and steamships. We could go see fireworks and ride a train – but we would have to wait a long time to ride in an airplane, listen to a radio, watch television, or use a computer. We’ll learn to identify a need and come up with fun, imaginative ways to meet that need. Who knows – you may just come up with a solution to something that we will all be using in the future!

Badge: Inventor (Brownies).

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).

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).
