Girl Scouts

Girl Scouts learned about energy with Karen Kirkland, a professor in Texas A&M University’s department of nuclear engineering.

Girl Scouts from College Station, Bryan, Hearne and Bellville recently participated in a Girl Scout journey, learning about energy with Karen Kirkland, a professor in Texas A&M University’s department of nuclear engineering. Kirkland talked to the Girl Scouts about careers in science, engineering, math and technology and about how reading and being creative are important in making technology that helps others. The Girl Scouts used the sun to make homemade pizzas and bake cookies and used a calorie-measuring lab to learn about fueling their bodies.

Girl Scout journeys have an element of community service, and the Scouts donated a solar light to the First Baptist Church in Hearne in appreciation of hosting the event.
