Girl Scouts has long valued being a partner in education to families, schools and nonprofit program providers. Our mission is to build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. Below are some resources we are offering the community as families adapt to online learning, share workspaces, and find ways to engage their children during this time. Activities are updated weekly at gsnetx.org/GSatHome.
Virtual Field Trip – STEM Center of Excellence – Be a Citizen Scientist
Produced by DiscoveryEd in conjunction with Girl Scouts, kids will have a fun time unleashing their inner scientist as they learn to be citizen scientists right from their own neighborhoods or backyards.

Every day at 10 a.m.: Girl Scouts Live! on Facebook with hands-on activities for all-ages
Tuesdays: Girl Scout Leadership Institute Career Exploration: High school aged girls won’t want to miss this. Each week will highlight a different professional field with videos from area volunteers.
Wednesdays: Ask the Expert: Girls of all ages can tune in to meet a different expert each week. Our guest experts will lead everyone through a short activity to introduce their area of expertise and then answer any questions you have!
Thursdays: Service Project activity videos: Learn how to complete a simple project to help make the world a better place. Each project is designed to utilize materials you already have at home so you can continue giving back while social distancing.
Fridays: Strong Girls: End your week strong with our Strong Girls series. Each week, we will introduce a curated playlist of YouTube videos that are age-appropriate and fun ways to stay physically healthy at home.
This programming will be live on Facebook - facebook.com/gsnetx and on YouTube. Questions? Email email@example.com.
