On November 20 the Boy Scouts are having a badge workshop for their Engineering Merit Badge. The event is also open to Girl Scouts 11-18 (C,S,A). The girls will do everything for the IP except the service project on that day. It will be held at UNLV and conducted by engineers. There is a service project set up for Oct 24 as well. If you attend the service project, the workshop fee of $7 is waived. This is a great program with knowledgable adults. Please contact Dawn Schofield firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Six of my girls earned their Gold Awards and all of the troop girls are now in college. Some are in town and some are out of state. They are all doing well! I am so proud of them! It is so great to watch them grow up and make good decisions. Do you have older girls now?
This really is a great program! The Boy Scouts set it up every three or four years. I took girls from my troop two different years. It changes a little each year, but it is run by working engineers and full of good information. Even if engineering is not a current career choice for your daughter, it is great to learn that all of our city's infrastructure came from somewhere.
No, it is just Build a Better Future, but if you look in the IPP book, it has suggestions that are linked to the subject matter. Several years ago, the Boy Scouts did a dentistry badge workshop at CSN that was also open to Girl Scouts.
Well, my daughter and I went to the Service project portion of the event yesterday and let me tell you we had a blast!!! My daughter got to use a sledge hammer to help the guys out. We were the only 2 girl scouts @ the event. Thanks for posting this.
