On Tuesday, July 28, are you looking for a fun and educational activity for you and your sister Girl Scouts? Would you and your friends like to fly through outer space?

Join us for a new adventurous virtual experience and learn about the skies over your own back yard.
On Wednesday, July 29, we’ll join Sidewalk Science Center to enjoy science experiments and demonstrations with everyday objects, all the while learning about the science behind each! Activities may include making cups fly through the air and magnets fall in slow motion, seeing the scale of the solar system, making holograms and human electric circuits, and so much more! With more than 24 activities on rotation, and more being added daily, every visit with Sidewalk Science Centers is a unique, memorable experience. Girls will focus on Optics, Magnetism, and Physics!
On Thursday, July 30, our special guest and program partner, Sabrina Cummings, will join us for a virtual fishing workshop. Sabrina is the Environmental Programs Coordinator at the Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast. Get your poles ready because you won’t want to miss her fishing instruction and demonstration.
On Friday, July 31, Southeastern Guide Dogs are no oridnary dogs! We will meet with a guide dog and learn about how guide dogs, service dogs, and skilled campanion dogs provide freedom, confidence, and hope for people who cannot see, for veterans who have seen too much, and for children facing significant challenges.
