On a normal day, I walk between my 2nd floor office and the Resource Center an average of probably 25 times. Usually, there’s nothing to really get excited about. Some days though, when I make the long, excruciating walk across the parking lot I am pleasantly pleased to find girls hanging out! That’s the best. Because a Girl Scout Resource Center should have girls in it right? Sometimes I find girls shopping in the Girl Scout Shop. Sometimes they are eating mass amounts of tootsie rolls from the bowl on Barb’s desk. Sometimes they are having meetings and doing awesome things- like today.
Today, while I was next door making copies I heard some giggling coming from the small conference room. Wanting to get in on the fun- I went to investigate and what I found was ultra cool. Picture 2 tables covered in LEGOs with girls all around making awesome things. That’s what I walked into. It was Legato Roboto, one of several of our all girl LEGO Robotics teams, part of the FIRST LEGO League. They let me hang out and talk with them for a while which was so much fun. Their “challenge” this year, they told me, is Food Factor and specifically chicken. I’ve posted some pictures that they let me take while I was interrupting them! You can find some video on our Facebook Page. If it looks fun- they still need one more member to make a complete team! If you are interested, you can contact Michelle Higgins for details.
