Daisy Troop 7228 and Wild Bird Rescue and Rehab

Submitted by Elizabeth Lacy

Aurora

On October 8, 2019, our Daisies learned about Wild Bird Rescue and Rehabilitation and earned the “Three Cheers for Animals!” badge! The nonprofit organization is located in Wheatridge, and visited us at our Aurora location. The girls spent time with the program educator and two sweet baby pigeons, who were very excited to be picked up and held by our enthusiastic troop.

For information on how your own troop can be part of this program, please check out the website at https://wildbirdrehab.com, or email Julie at emailjulie@mac.com. They do great work!

We had a few girls who were afraid of birds and this was a perfect safe way for them to learn about birds and caring for animals!

Girl Scouts build and test roller coaster cars with the LEGO Group

17 Girl Scout Daisies had the unique opportunity to build and test an awesome roller coaster car and ramp with the LEGO Group at Colorado Mills Mall in Lakewood on  Sunday, September 15, 2019! With the help of parents, caregivers, troop leaders, and LEGO Store employees, these Daisies learned about mechanical engineering and motion. Girls also explored how roller coasters work by designing, building, and testing their cars. As part of the event, the girls got to keep their LEGO cars and even earned their “Daisy Roller Coaster Design Challenge” badge. This event is all thanks to a national partnership between the LEGO Group and Girl Scouts of the USA! GSCO hopes to offer more events like this in the future.

A special thanks to CBS Denver who joined GSCO for the event and shared the story with their viewers!

Earn a FREE cybersecurity patch

Calling all Girl Scout Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors! Here’s your chance to earn a special cybersecurity patch from Girl Scouts of the USA.

Step One

Choose the cybersecurity activity appropriate for your Girl Scout level as listed in this PDF:

CybersecurityPatch_FacilitatorGuide

These activities are from the Daisy, Brownie, and Junior cybersecurity badges. If you choose to swap out another activity, we highly recommend that you use one from Badge 1: Cybersecurity Basics, since that badge teaches foundational concepts that are built on in badges 2 and 3.

Step Two

Complete the activity and take lots of photos/videos.

Step Three

Share your story and photos from the activity using the Share Your Stories form: www.gscoblog.org/share 

Be sure to include what you learned about cybersecurity and why it is so important, along with any plans you might have to earn another STEM or cybersecurity badge.

Watch this video by a troop of Girl Scout Juniors who earned this special patch.

Once your story and photos have been received, GSCO Public Relations Director AnneMarie Harper will contact you regarding the number of patches you need and where they should be mailed. Patches will be distributed on a first come, first-serve basis.

Pagosa Springs

Daisy Troop 26237 of Pagosa Springs worked on earning a new petal and the “Eco Learner” badge by helping their community with a trash pick-up day. The girls picked up trash with their parents and troop leaders around Pagosa Springs Elementary School and Pagosa Springs Town Park. The girls also placed quilted hearts for “I Found A Quilted Heart” around the trash pick-up locations to show random acts of kindness and to hopefully brighten someone else’s day. The girls said, “It is so much fun working together and helping our community.”
