Journey in a Day: Think Like an Engineer

Saturday, April 15, 2023

23 JIAD HH Large

Date: Saturday, April 15, 2023
Time: 8-11:30 a.m. (CSA), 1-4:30 p.m. (DBJ)
Location: Renaissance Hotel, Boca Raton
Cost: $35 for Girl Scouts, $10 for adults
Grade Levels: All Grade Levels

Let's travel to a galaxy far, far away to complete this year’s Journey in a Day: Think Like an Engineer! During our one-day Journey, Girl Scouts will dig deeper into the engineering galaxy and use skills gained along the way to help make a difference in their community. We will learn all about the design process and test out how engineers use design thinking to solve real world problems.

This program will be broken down into two sessions:

  • Cadettes, Seniors, Ambassadors in the morning
  • Daisies, Brownies, Juniors in the afternoon
Cadette Leader in Action (LiA) Award

The Leader in Action award focuses on guiding girls through leading younger Girl Scouts in Girl Scout activities. These Cadettes will complete their Journey first, then stay for the remainder of the day to complete the LiA training before putting what they learned into practice later on with the Brownies as they complete their Journey.

LiAs will receive their LiA Award along with the Journey in a Day fun patch. We will have limited space for Cadettes to register to take part in the LiA training during this year’s Journey in a Day.

Will Participants Complete their Journey?

Only the first two elements of the Think like an Engineer Journey will be completed during this program. The Take Action Project will be discussed, but will be left to each Girl Scout or troop to complete on their own time.

All Girl Scout participants will receive a Journey in a Day fun patch. Additionally, Girl Scouts will have earned their Think Like an Engineer badge after completing this program. Badges are not included in the cost of this program but can be purchased at Girl Scout retail locations or online.

Color outside the lines with GSSEF during our third annual Art Fest hosted this year at Camp Welaka!

This program is designed for Girl Scout levels Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, and Cadettes to explore different elements of MESSY art and earn their Outdoor Art badge based on their Girl Scout level (please see below). Not only will you be able to learn and engage in so many colorful activities, but you will also be able to take your Girl Scout art with you at the end of the event!

All Call for Artwork to be displayed at the event

Don’t miss your chance to have your artwork displayed for all your peers to see at this very event! Did you know that Juliette Gordon Low was an artist herself?! She loved painting, drawing, and sculpting! Now it’s your turn to embrace your inner Juliette Gordon Low!

Provide us with any medium of art that represents Girl Scouts, what Juliette Gordon Low might be interested in today, or your favorite thing about Girl Scouts! Girl Scouts who submit their artwork will also have their name entered into a drawing for a chance to win a creator kit! We are accepting Girl Scout art now through April 27!

These can be dropped off during operating hours at either of the retail stores or at the Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida Headquarters, located in Lake Worth. All artworks must be framed or mounted on matte board or foam core board at time of submission.

Additional Information

Please be sure to wear closed-toe shoes and clothes that you wouldn’t mind getting dirty. Full details about the program will be included in the confirmation, which will be sent the week of the program.

Please note that badges are not included in the cost of this program and must be purchased separately.

Note: Adults registering for this program will serve as adult supervision for the group. Additionally, registered adults must have a Girl Scout registered with them in order to enter.
