Girls will learn what it takes to be a creative inventor and solve problems like a scientist. This class meets all 5 requirements in the Girl Scout manual. The class will warm their creative minds up by making as many designs using a circle as possible. Following a brief introduction to song, the girls will then be given a variety of recycled objects to create their own musical instrument to take home. Scouts will continue by learning how to create a detailed needs list using a mind map, followed by an exploration of some women inventors who's creations have improved our world!
