Earn your Intellectual Property patch and a step towards your Product Designer badge on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017! The Intellectual Property Owners (IPO) Education Foundation and IPO Women in IP Committee invite Girl Scouts to join us for a morning of fun and creativity as you earn your Intellectual Property (IP) patch and a step towards your Product Designer Badge.

Estes Park

Girl Scout Troop 70455 has spent this year working on their Bronze Award. The Bronze Award project is a team effort by a Girl Scout troop undertaken to benefit the local community and is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior can earn. These girls from Estes Park worked to develop their idea, research, earn the money, and implement the project.

The troop hopes to make a difference by helping dogs and cats that are looking for forever homes. Troop 70455 worked to make adoption bags for dogs and cats that are up for adoption through the Estes Park Pet Association. The bags include toys that the girls made and received from donations, homemade treats, and other essential pet supplies. The girls also made the bags out of t-shirts purchased from Elizabeth Guild. Adoption bags will be provided with each dog or cat adoption.

The Girl Scouts were proud to be able to donate more than 50 bags to the Pet Lodge at the Animal Medical Center and the Animal Hospital of the Rockies for the adoption of dogs and cats through the Pet Association of Estes Park.

Juniors earn “Animal Habitats” badge

Submitted by Dorothy Morris

Golden

Girl Scout Junior Troop 63915 earned our “Animal Habitats” badge at Crown Hill Park. Ranger Chris and Ranger Kelly taught us about the many animal habitats in JeffCo’s oldest open space park. Wetlands, tall grasses, trees, water, and marshlands are the homes to many wild animals- right in the middle of the city!

We explored the animal sanctuary and saw a coyote den (no coyotes, though. They must have been out hunting for food), a fallen tree that was the habitat to many insect species, and just when we least expected it- a family of deer! We stood behind a blind and watched them. We tried to be very quiet, but once we made a noise the deers’ large ears perked up and honed in on our location. However, they must have felt so safe in the sanctuary because they didn’t run away. It was a very special experience to be able to observe them so closely.

Parker

About 20 Juniors from four different troops got together in Parker to work on their “Junior Jeweler” badge. Ms. C from Troop 1996 hosted the event. Conny Karman, a self-taught jewelry artist and past troop leader/volunteer lead the event. Armed with safety goggles, a hammer, and pliers, the girls worked on five projects. They stamped metal jewelry, caged and wrapped jewelry, learned about birthstones, and made a sparkling box to keep their new jewelry. The event lasted about 2.5 hours. There were 2-3 parent helpers on each session. If you are interested in hosting an event, please contact info@ideaitlab.com.

Earn Adventure badges at Colorado State University

Fort Collins

Kappa Delta Sorority at Colorado State University will be hosting an Adventure Campus Tour on Saturday, March 4, 2017 from noon – 3 p.m. This event would seek to offer two badges for the Girl Scouts under the “Adventure” badge category. This includes the Letterboxer badge for Brownies and Geocacher badge for Juniors. During this event, Girl Scouts would be able to tour facilities such as the student center and library on the CSU campus. As the Girl Scouts follow the tour with the Kappa Deltas, they will complete the workshop that includes the steps necessary to earn the Adventure badges. The Girl Scouts would meet at the Kappa Delta chapter facility for drop off/pick-up for the campus tour. The tour will then conclude with snacks and games on The Oval at CSU! For this event, I would suggest bringing a water bottle, comfy clothing and shoes, and snacks if your child has a severe food allergy. All Kappa Delta members are required to attend the event, so there will be a little over 100 Kappa Deltas in attendance. These members have hosted workshops with Girl Scouts in the past. Some are even alumnae! All materials will be provided to earn the badge, but troop leaders and parents are more than welcome to join us for the tour! Kappa Delta Sorority looks forward to hosting events that further values of self-esteem, confidence, and courage shared between our organization and Girl Scouts of the USA. We hope you are able to join us!
