Love the outdoors? Science and Technology? The environment? Lots of other girls do too. Explore your interests together in a way that fits your schedule. You can be sure we have something fun that fits in between cheerleading and soccer!
Most series meet once or twice a month and last anywhere from 4-8 meetings. For more information on what Series are currently being offered, please visit our Program and Events Calendar.
No Girl Left Inside
Girl Scouts have a rich history of outdoor education and environmental stewardship. Through Series like No Girl Left Inside, we are able to revive these traditions and take a stand for sustainability in our community. Our goal is to give girls the opportunities to discover nature and high adventure- something they may never discover without us. Girls are able to connect with others who enjoy the great outdoors and develop not only a passion for playing, but for protecting our natural resources. The No Girl Left Inside series allows girls to learn about the interconnection of people and nature and develop respect and appreciation and a passion to become stewards of our natural resources.
Girl Scouts know that it takes passion to affect change. This is why we incorporate service learning and Girl Scouts’ Discover, Connect, Take Action model into everything we do. We use service learning and hands-on learning models to deliver meaningful curriculum in a fun, engaging way.
Learn to hike, camp and climb a mountain! Go on backpacking excursions, learn to paddle and even learn to scuba dive! The possibilities are endless.
The Green Core Project
The Green Core Project connects girls with the earth and gives them the skills to create a more sustainable future. Through hands-on environmental education programs that incorporate everything from botany to resource management, Girl Scouts develop strong environmental literacy skills that allow them to make informed decisions concerning the environment in their own lives. The goal of the Green Core Project is for it to become second nature for Girl Scouts to think about how their actions and the actions of others impact the Earth and in what ways they can make sure these actions are positive.
The Green Core Project works with community partners to highlight existing sustainability efforts in Arizona. By connecting Girl Scouts with projects that are already in place, girls have a chance to see sustainability in action, make tangible contributions to their community, and draw inspiration from the work of those they meet. The Green Core Project then allows girls to put their own ideas into action with opportunities to develop and implement sustainable projects at the three Girl Scout properties in the Tucson area.
Girls will have the opportunity to prep, grow, and harvest all of native produce, plan and build a coop and then care for chickens, and design and carry out multiple other green projects.
Even when you’re not thinking about it, nearly everything you do is influenced by math, science and technology. In fact, just by looking at this webpage you are using one of the fastest-growing technologies there is – the Internet!
Math is all around you.
Many people think of math as adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. That’s ONE type of mathematics – arithmetic. But math is so much more than that. It’s the algebra that NASA uses to plot a rocket’s path to Mars. It’s the trigonometry surveyors use to plan the location of a new road. It’s the geometry calculations that help you make that free throw while playing basketball with your friends.
Technology is all around you.
Technology is already a major force in the lives of today’s girls. Just think how most girls are connected through PCs, cell phones or pagers, not to mention VCRs, MP3 players, DVDs and countless other devices with embedded chips. And that doesn’t include all the daily appliances, machines, vehicles and instruments that also use technology. How many items can you come up with?
Science is all around you.
Most of the information that your brain receives comes through your eyes. Sometimes, instead of waiting for all the signals from the billions of nerve cells to come in, your brain takes shortcuts. If images are unusual or unfamiliar, the brain can get confused. Images that “fool” the brain are called optical illusions.
