Daisies Elizabeth and Summer Ella with multi-level Troop 65659 completed the Daisy Automotive Design badge. They both chose to design campers.  Summer Ella’s camper will take you to the bottom of the ocean, “fast.” To entertain yourself on the way, you will have iPads and a climbing wall. Elizabeth’s camper will take you to an island, so you can find treasure. It has wings to get you over the ocean.

Summer’s sister, Junior Kennedy, helped with the badge. She designed a mobile library. It has a flashing light that can take you to the past and future. It also has a sunroof that functions as a terrarium for frogs and insects. The girls really enjoyed learning about parts of vehicles and becoming designers.

Daisy Space Science Explorer badge: Step Three of Three

When Daisies earn the Space Science Explorer badge, they’ll have explored and observed the Sun, Moon, and stars.

Time to meet the last thing in our sky, the stars! Did you know that the Sun is the closest star to us? Most of the stars in the sky are very far away, trillions of miles away!

Step One: Explore the Sun

Step Two: Observe the Moon

Step Three: Meet the Stars

Watch this video to learn how to make your own constellation. Constellations are patterns in the stars that people see shapes in. Some of the most seen are Ursa Major (aka the Big Dipper or the Great Bear) and Orion’s Belt. You can make your own constellation, starting with your hand. Place stars at the tips of your fingers, palm, and wrist. Connect the stars in a pattern that makes sense to you, and then name your new start pattern!

Daisy Space Science Explorer badge: Step One of Three

When Daisies earn the Space Science Explorer badge, they’ll have explored and observed the Sun, Moon, and stars.

Did you know that Earth, the planet we live on, spins around the sun? During the day, it looks like the sun is moving across our sky, but we’re the ones moving! When you’re on the part of the Earth that faces the Sun, it’s daytime, but when it’s facing away, it’s nighttime.

Step One: Explore the Sun

During a sunny day, use a piece of paper, rocks, a writing utensil, and a small toy, to create shadow art! Place a piece of paper on the ground weighed down by small rocks on the edges. Place your toy so that it casts a shadow onto the paper. Using your pencil or marker, trace the shadow to create the shape of your toy on the paper! Come back every couple of hours to see how the shadow looks differently throughout the day. Trace it again to compare.
