Girl Scout Workshops

 

Girl Scouts of Northern California can earn badges and have fun at the Children’s Creativity Museum. Our innovative and hands-on programs are designed to help build creative confidence in Daisies to Cadettes. Check out these exciting and collaborative workshop options.

The Girls Scouts of Northern California provides opportunities for girls (and volunteers) to grow their strengths, passions, and talents.

BROWNIES (Grades 2-3) | INVENTORS CHALLENGE | Saturday, September 23, 2017 | 10am-12pm

Calling all innovators! Have you ever wanted to invent something, like a machine that freezes time so you can finish your homework? Or perhaps a way to clean up a massive amount of JELL-O flooding your school? Earn your Inventors badge in this creative two-hour workshop. Girl Scouts will be given a prompt to invent something and must work collaboratively to build solutions using only the materials provided in their Mystery Box. Girls are challenged to think in terms of design - What does this invention need to do? How can I build it so that it works AND stays together?

With the help of museum educators Girl Scouts learn brainstorming techniques, the fundamentals of prototyping, engage in creative problem-solving, and experience the design thinking process. Throughout the process, Girl Scouts tap into their critical thinking skills and can develop communications skills by explaining the steps they took. After building a prototype, groups present their solution and can take their inventions home!

Learn the art of falling with style in this fun design thinking workshop! Girl Scouts are introduced to the concept of aerodynamics as they build, test and modify different aircraft designs at the parachute and hovercraft stations. Girls explore the many creative ways we can use air to help us fly, float, and fall with style by constructing various styles of parachutes and "hovercraft" to test in CCM's air tunnel. Children gain a deeper understanding of flight and design principles while they explore and experiment with both stations, and are welcome to take their aerial innovations home!
