Girl Scout Day: An Update

Last weekend, 101 Girl Scouts from around Indiana traveled to Purdue to experience a day in the life of an engineer.

Their day started off with a walk through Armstrong and a greeting from Girl Scout Day Chair, Karen McCormick.

At the end of the day, the girls received an event patch for “Society of Women Engineers Girl Scout Day” to add to their vests.

And the parents loved it too!

Next Sunday, Cadettes will be attending the second Girl Scout Day to take apart printers and computer mice, learn about genetics with IGEM, and make their own flashlight. If you would like to join in on the fun and volunteer, sign-up here.
