Girl Scout Day
Explore the world we build for ourselves make connections to Girl Scout Journeys
Join us for Girl Scout Day at the National Building Museum, a day designed especially for Daisy, Brownie, and Junior Girl Scouts. Explore the world we build for ourselves and work on badge and journey requirements. Girls participate in multiple hands-on activities and have the opportunity to talk to building professionals.
During this program Girl Scouts will be able to:
- Create an arch bridge out of straws with engineers from the American Society of Civil Engineers.
- Explore the Museum’s building on a scavenger hunt to reveal its amazing history.
- Learn how to clean water by creating a simple water filter.
- Build a green roof that really grows and learn how plants contribute to cleaner air.
- Turn garbage into something useful and beautiful by turning an old plastic bottle into a flower vase.
Prepaid registration required by Thursday, October 18, 2012. Walk-in registration based on availability. Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferrable.
