Juniors host STEM party for Bronze Award
Posted: May 24, 2014
North Stonington Junior troop #63068 hosted a party to earn their Bronze Award. They invited local Brownies and Juniors to try out four different STEM activities. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. The junior troop spent many hours researching, planning, creating materials, and rehearsing for the party. The girls gave a short introduction to start the evening off, then came out dressed in lab coats as the Super STEMs. The scientists taught their guests how to make a jellyfish in a bottle - an experiment showing buoyancy. The Technology experts showed the girls how to harness the power of the wind by making a hover craft and demonstrating how a wind turbine produces energy. The Engineers lead their guests in designing and building a catapult, which they tested out with a target and a marshmallow. Finally, the Mathematicians had their guests practice their estimating skills with a delicious snack. They also estimated how far they could jump, then took turns jumping and measuring their jumps.
Everyone had a great time at the STEM party!
