Girl Scouts Workshops

New this year! From Daisies to Seniors, we have you covered on your way to earning your badges! Spend a day with your troop and have fun while learning about yourself and the world around you. 

Workshop topics range from discovering nature to designing products to conducting science experiments that can take place at home! There is something for every grade and interest level, so find what best fits your troop. 

Workshops

NEW this year, we can bring our workshops to your Girl Scouts or schedule your workshop at the science center on a day that is convenient for your troop! All workshops are two hour workshops, unless otherwise noted.

Please note that some workshops must take place at Imagination Station due to technology needs and will be noted in the description. 


Daisies

Robotics
Put your engineering minds to the test learning all about robots, coding a model robot, and creating your own prototype robot. During this workshop, you will meet the requirements for three Daisy badges: What Robots Do, How Robots Move and Design a Robot. Must take place at Imagination Station. 

Space Science Explorer - NEW! 
Become a junior astronomer as you discover the sun, use scientific tools to take a closer look at the moon and take a trip into the STARLAB portable planetarium. Your daisies will learn about some of the constellations in the night sky. 1.5 hour workshop

Brownies

Inventor
Do you ever wonder what it takes to develop a new kind of phone or a new way to power a light bulb? Would you like an invention that would help tie your shoes faster or one to make elevators record your singing while you ride? For this badge, find out how inventors create new innovations, and become an inventor yourself! 1.5 hour workshop

Programming Robots
Learn all about robots -- how they work and what they do. Then use your knowledge to build a robot and program it using a variety of commands. During this workshop, you will meet all of the requirements for the Programming Robots badge.

Space Science Adventurer - NEW!  
Become an amateur astronomer as you learn about Earth's place in our solar system, why the moon has different phases and look through a telescope. Then take a trip into our STARLAB portable planetarium and discover the stories behind some of the constellations. 

Juniors

Programming Robots - NEW! 
Become a programmer and learn all about robots, their parts and how coding works. Then try your hand at coding a robot yourself. Must take place at Imagination Station.

Mechanical Engineering - Cars and Cranes - NEW! 
During this workshop, you will explore with forces and motion as well as simple machines as you create cars and cranes. This workshop will allow you to meet the requirements of TWO Mechanical Engineering Badges through the Balloon Car Design Challenge and Crane Design Challenge. 

Cadettes 

Programming Robots - NEW! 
Become a programmer and learn all about robots, their parts and how coding works. Then create your own robotic sensor and even code a robot. Must take place at Imagination Station.

Seniors (NEW)

Programming Robots - NEW! 
In this workshop, seniors will discover the parts of robots, build a functioning robotic arm and even program a robot. Must take place at Imagination Station.

 

*Workshop cancellations will not be refunded: however, registrations are transferable or passes may be provided. We reserve the right to cancel workshops if minimum registration numbers are not met, and refunds would be issued or applied to another workshop. We can give a pass, good for admission only, but the workshop is not refundable.
