Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont has a collection of over 100 Girl Scout uniforms that are available to Girl Scout troops and groups to check out and use for fashion shows, special events or displays. With Thinking Day and the Girl Scout birthday right around the corner, maybe your troop has a special need and would like to check out some of the uniforms!
To reserve uniforms, troops can contact Amanda Coltrane two weeks prior to when the uniforms are needed. Troops are able to request certain time periods, levels and sizes. Troops are able to loan the uniforms for two days, but exceptions can be made if the event is over the weekend.
The 2014 Girl Scout Cookie Program is half-way over and the results so far are looking great! THANK YOU for your dedication and hard work to making the sale successful. We are still working toward meeting our goal 100 percent and you can be a part of that! Click here for an update.
Google and the North Carolina Science Festival are teaming up to help bring science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education to life with a rousing, hands-on educational experience.
The Gravity Games – now in its fifth year – is a real-world experience in which participants from across the state use STEM lessons to build and race their own gravity powered cars in downtown Lenoir, N.C.
The checkered flag flies on April 5; the deadline for registration is March 22. But you can register now to start planning and teaching your team about the principles that will make their student teams successful.
To register for this year’s NC Gravity Games please go the official website.
Please direct any questions about the games to Wayne Capps.
