Between Earth and Sky (Daisies): Daisies will absorb information about plants, rocks and soil just like plants and soil absorb water! Girls orbit the Earth on a virtual tour to get a satellite-eye view of our plant-rich planet, learning about habitats around the world. Upon returning to Earth (and soil!), Daisies engage in interactive, fun activities that help them understand how seeds are dispersed as well as how water affects soil, plants and stones. This hands-on exploration is topped off with the girls planting seeds to take home for further exploration and observation. (Click here for a Daisy Journeys Tip Guide)

WOW! Wonders of Water! Workshop (Brownies): Brownies begin their exploration of the importance of water with a virtual tour of the solar system. Along the way, they discover how unique the Earth is with its abundance of liquid water (often described as the Goldilocks principle). Their journey continues with hands-on experiments where they learn how water helps regulate temperatures across the Earth. Scouts create rainbows, exploring the colors with special diffraction glasses and end the workshop with a tasty exploration of regular fruit vs. dried fruit. This engaging, hands-on program inspires Brownies to treasure and protect this precious resource. (Click here for a Brownies Journeys Tip Guide)

Get Moving! Workshop (Juniors): Juniors take an electrifying virtual journey to learn about types of energy, the vital role the sun plays, global warming, light pollution and recycling. Scouts are energized to conserve resources as they experiment with solar energy and more effective ways of packaging goods. The workshop is topped off with a tour of the constellations and girls leave empowered with practical steps they can take toward energy conservation. (Click here for a Junior Journeys Tip Guide)
