The Future is Green at GSNorcal
Not sure what to do with your cookie bucks or destinations money?? There are spots available in this 10-day exciting destination.
"The Future is Green" is a marriage of Girl Scouts of Northern California's (GSNorcal) Girls Go Tech and Green By Nature initiatives. This cutting-edge adventure will offer Girl Scouts the opportunity to explore how green technology in astronomy, environment, and robotics can help save the Earth.
Astronomy participants will learn about the night sky, technology that is used to explore the universe, and how astronomers have become instrumental in research regarding global climate change and space debris. Robotics participants will explore the importance of robots in exploration, health care, and helping to make the world "green." They will then design, build, and program their own robot to meet certain challenges. Environment participants will explore the eco-challenges and successes of the San Francisco Bay. Fieldtrips include NASA Ames Research Center, Monterey Bay Aquarium, and behind the scenes at the California Academy of Sciences.
