Virtual - GS Senior/Ambassador Think Like an Engineer Journey Workshops (Oct 19, 26, & Nov 2; 4:00-5:30 PM Pacific)
Challenge Island® partners with Girl Scout councils nationwide, and we also offer fully interactive, hands-on STEAM Girl Scout virtual workshops for girls of all ages - Daisy through Ambassador! This workshop is taught by a certified Challenge Island Owner who is also a Lifetime Girl Scout and a former Girl Scout Council Director. But girls be warned: These are not sit-watch-a-video and do the activity on your own types of classes! These classes are fully interactive with the teacher and the other kids on the call and completely hands-on, just as our in-person classes are. So come join us on our interactive online classes and connect with your troop members and new Girl Scout friends. We have put together a special workshop just for you!

At each workshop session, girls will use the Engineering Design Process to understand a real-world issue, create a design build around the topic, and will have the opportunity to show off their go-getter ingenuity to their fellow Girl Scouts. Girls are encouraged to wear their sash/vest.
Per GSUSA, we will be following the Senior TLE Journey requirements for a multi-level TLE Journey workshop. Girls will earn the TLE Journey Award for their respective levels.
With participation in all three Journey workshop sessions, girls complete the entire Journey except for the Take Action Project which must come from the girls' vision and be implemented in their community per GSUSA requirements. The Take Action Project will need to be completed as a Girl Scout troop or as an individual.
Once registered, we will send you a Materials List which the Girl Scout can have a scavenger hunt with around the house. Many to all of the items are things you have in the house. You can gather an item OR substitute something else.
Cost includes: Three 1½-hour workshops with 3 separate design build challenges, three materials lists scavenger hunts, additional printouts as needed, AND a Certificate of Completion & exclusive Challenge Island patch mailed directly to the Girl Scout. This does not include the Journey Award.
