Juniors will learn how to use the Design Thinking Process to solve problems through hands-on activities and discussion. First, they will design an emergency shelter in response to an earthquake. Second, they will build a protoype and test it on a shake table!
After participating in this two-hour workshop, Juniors will have completed all requirements for the Think Like an Engineer Badge 2&3: Emergency Shelter and Earthquake Resistant Building (badge NOT included). Exhibition wristbands included for Girl Scouts, but adults must purchase their own wristbands (members are always free!).
This is NOT a drop-off program and all Girl Scouts must be accompanied by an adult. Space is limited. Refunds are not possible 2 weeks or less from the program date. Registration closes at midnight on Thursday, November 16 in order to leave time to prep materials.
