    9:00 am CDT - 11:00 am CDT
  • June 18, 2021, CDT
    9:00 am CDT - 11:00 am CDT

Event Phone: (573) 645-0800

Get comfortable with your graphing calculator!  We’ll use concepts from Algebra I to explore what your calculator can do.  Practice basic calculations, and then jump into solving equations, data collection and more.

You will need either a physical TI-84 or you many download an emulator to a phone or tablet.

This class is taught by Ms Donna Stallings of The Worthy Project.  Ms Stallings is a retired professor of math at Lincoln University and a former homeschool mom. You’ll love her high energy and joy in learning and teaching.

Let’s program your first video game! Ages 9+ We’ll learn the basics of making a video game by creating our own maze style game.
We’ve found that video game design works great as an online class! Students can share their screens with the teacher and teachers can share with students. Because classes are kept small (usually between 4-7 students) there is plenty of time to ask questions and get to know each other. This will be a fun way to earn your Junior Coding for Good: Badge 2.
This class will meet via Zoom. An invitation will be sent out a couple of days before class starts. You do not have to be a Girl Scout to take this class. Badge 2 can be taken before Badge 1.
MultiMedia Fusion 2.5 will be our game design program. The free trial version is very good. Here is a download link: https://www.clickteam.com/clickteam-fusion-2-5. They are also offering the full version for free through the end of August at which point that license will expire.
Please have your software downloaded before class. We’re happy to help if you need it, just let us know.

    6:00 pm CDT - 6:50 pm CDT

Event Phone: (573) 645-0800

 

Let’s explore robotics! We’ll explore some of the many ways robots are used, then, you’ll help us program a robot to find the Girl Scout Cookies! Did you know your cell phone has sensors just like robots do? We’ll show you how to access those sensors so you can do some fun experiments. We’ll be using Arduino Science Journal to access the sensors on you phone or tablet.  Please download this free app before class.  You can read more about it here: https://science-journal.arduino.cc/
Tuition: $6, scholarships available, please ask.
This class will meet on Zoom, so you’ll need a device to run Zoom. To explore sensors, we’ll use the
We’re excited to help you earn your badge! (Badges may be purchased from the Girl Scouts when requirements are completed)

UpcomingDaisy Coding for Good Badge 3

  • Daisy Coding Badge 3
    June 18, 2021, CDT
    10:00 am CDT - 10:45 am CDT

This is a live, online event with a limit of 9 per class.

30 minute workshop

Tuition: $5
Learn about coding as you create a digital story and bring it to life with code.  You’ll use  a cool programming language called Scratch, Jr. Scratch, Jr is a fun language available free online and was developed for children ages 5-7. You can read more about it here: https://www.scratchjr.org/
Before we meet, download Scratch, Jr to a tablet, iPad or phone. It would be good to have 1 device for Zoom and one for Scratch, Jr. That way, you’ll be able to see the teacher’s screen and follow along.
We will complete the requirements for Badge 3 at this workshop.

UpcomingBrownie Robotics-Badge 2 steps 1 and 2

  • June 22, 2021, CDT
    6:30 pm CDT - 7:15 pm CDT
Learn about biomimicry-design influenced by nature- , design a robot bumblebee, and engineer a fun grabber! We’ll be working on the Brownies Robotics Badge 2: Designing Robots. In this workshop we will complete Steps 1 and 2. We’ll have another session soon to complete the remaining requirements.
Parents, below is a list of supplies you’ll need to collect. You’ll want to have your child measure and mark the cardboard for cutting. If you’d like a little materials engineering, have your child cut one piece with the lines of corrugation in the cardboard and one at a right angle to them. Which is stronger? Because cutting and measuring take more time, please do this step before the workshop.
A note, if you’re interested in doing badge 3, have your child do a video explaining the projects that she works on after the meeting. Share that video with other scouts and/or send it to LabSpace and we’ll start a special YouTube album so other scouts can get ideas from their work:)
Supplies and Prep:
Heavy recycled cardboard – 4 pieces 10 inches by 1.5 inches. Have your child measure and mark. Adults may need to cut.
Sharp Pencil or screw driver for poking holes
4 1.5 inch paper fasteners (the kind with legs you can pull apart)
3 or 4 rubber bands of different sizes
2 paint stirrers or rulers
Duct or making tape
String – about 2 feet

Let’s explore what parts a robot has. How does it move? Wheels? Crawler Tracks? Legs? What is a motor? What are sensors?
We’ll spend time exploring sound sensors using the Arduino Science Journal app. First, we’ll build a musical instrument using 2 pencils, rubber bands, and a box with a hole on top (a tissue box would be perfect), and several rubber bands of different shapes (they’ll need to be big enough to go all the way around the box.
The Arduino Science Journal App is a free app. You’ll need to download it to a phone or tablet before class (there are more sensors on a phone, if you’d like to explore others). You can read about the app here: https://www.arduino.cc/education/science-journal
You will complete the requirements for this badge.  The badge is not included.
