Learn to think like an engineer during this "Arctic Survivor" themed weekend! Can you build an igloo?  Design a parachute?  Create a snowball launcher?  Make an insulating blanket? Join other Juniors and learn how to utilize your construction skills as you work as a team to solve engineering challengesl like building shelter and structures are to withstand the elements. Juniors will rotate through the engineering design challenges and project roles including Project Manager, Materials Manager, Chief Architect, or Master Builder. Groups will be guided by older Girl Scouts, many from our GSSJC STEM Squad, who will serve as team captains. Individual girls (with an adult chaperone) are welcome as well as girls within troops that are interested in the topic.       

Girls will complete all Journey requirements except the Take Action Project and will receive the Think Like an Engineer badge. Girls will complete the Take Action Project and receive the Take Action Project badge on their own. All meals on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday are provided. An optional session will be set aside on Sunday where troops can have dedicated time to brainstorm their Take Action Project plan. 

Drop-off and Supervision: This is NOT a drop-off event; Girl Scout ratio of adults are required to attend and must register. Adult space is limited. Please only register the required minimum number of adults per Girl Scout ratio in Volunteer Essentials. 
Adult Requirements: Adults must have an up-to-date membership and background check since they will be supervising girls. Because adults are required to supervise girls inside the cabins, we unfortunately cannot accommodate male chaperones for this activity.
Tagalongs and Registration Switches: No tagalongs allowed at this event and no at-the-door registrations are accepted. Please be diligent in ensuring the correct girls are registered so materials can be prepared appropriately. Any registrant swaps should be completed at least 2 weeks in advance. 
Bring: overnight gear (a suggested packing list will be available after registration is completed) and Girl Permission Slip/Medical Form or Adult Emergency Slip
Note: There are additional documents available now for this offering, including a packing list, details if a troop wishes to stay later on Sunday to plan their project, and other confirmation details. Only the adult who completes registration for their group/troop will be able to see the additional documents. The additional documents are in the “My Activities�? Tab and will be viewable immediately after your registration is complete.  Please share this information with the participants you are completing registration for.
