JUNIOR GIRL SCOUTS - Get Moving Journey Workshop

Understand energy systems by learning how to calculate your average eco-footprint, determine the amount of energy of different light bulbs, and build a wind turbine. Making a bead necklace and recycled paper are also part of the fun. A previous discussion of things that use power and the concept of recycling should be conducted by the Troop leader prior to the workshop.
