Karissa Farr and Brooke Harris earn 2018 Silver Award


Karissa and Brooke’s Silver Award project brings the fun of learning into summertime. Seeing that their town’s recreation program offered only sports activities to kids in their town, these Girl Scouts took action to make sure that kids in grades 1-5 got a chance to check out all the fun and awesome things they could be doing with science, technology, engineering and math.

They built a curriculum manual and ran the programs throughout the summer, using handouts and Facebook to advertise their program. They were thrilled when kids came back week after week. Going forward, the Ashland Recreation Department will be using Karissa and Brooke’s Summertime STEM program each summer!
