This past June, Girl Scouts, Audrey and Madeline, from Girl Scout Troops 3042 and 1310 visited NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.
With nine other council teams, they participated in some really fantastic astronomy activities. They even got to learn about astrophysics and heliophysics - the study of stars and other celestial bodies and the study of the effects that the sun has on the solar system. Each day they heard from different speakers from NASA, learning about their experiences in their specific fields of study. How awesome is that?!
The Girl Scouts were challenged with creating their own Reaching for
the Stars Astronomy Club for each of their councils. Audrey and
Madeline learned a lot of awesome new things about Astronomy and came
back excited to share all that they have learned from their
experience. They have been tasked with starting the GSME Astronomy
Club and we can't wait to see what they come up with!
