Information by RankBrownies
Join us on June 5 for a one-day virtual Brownie Girl Scouts Mechanical Engineering Workshop. Brownies will learn about forces, friction, and energy while they design, build, and test a leap bot, fling flyer and race car. A kit of essential items will be provided. You have the option to pick-up the materials from us or have those materials shipped to you for a fee (during registration). We will also provide a materials list of household items that will need to be gathered for the workshop. Adult help is highly recommended during the workshop as the scouts will need to do activities like folding paper airplanes.
