Do hands-on challenges and experiments with engineering students from Minnesota State University!

You’ll play with your food by creating a snack tower, learn about and test ancient building design concepts, and dive into materials science to answer the question: “what makes the best superhero cape?”

Girl Scouts will join small groups, get a chance to talk with other Girl Scouts, and do activities facilitated MSU students. Make it a troop event! Girl Scouts that sign up as a troop will be grouped together for small group activities.
 

This event is super hands-on! You'll need the following supplies to participate with us:

  • any combination of cubed fruit, veggies, grapes, cheese, etc.
  • toothpicks
  • 5 pieces of blank white paper
  • clear tape
  • scissors
  • markers
  • a few books to use as weights
  • 2-3 things made of fabric/fabric scraps and/or big paper. Examples include: an old t-shirt, a towel, a sheet, old curtains, a scarf, a sheet of poster paper or a large paper like legal-sized paper, etc. This is for your superhero cape test!
