Our Daisies do more than make friendship bracelets and sell cookies! The first-grade girls in Troop 65565 learned about the law of conservation of energy from one of the troop dads who is an engineer, and then had a chance to design and build their own roller coasters.
With just some cardboard, straws, ping pong balls, and a little hot glue, all of the girls got a hands-on STEM experience, and earned their Roller Coaster Design Challenge badge!
We’re teaching our girls to be innovators and risk-takers through some of the new STEM badges, and they’re having a blast doing it!
