Think Like an Engineer with THINKWELL

Brownie Girl Scouts can participate in creative STEM activities with a focus on technology as tools for imaginative exploration. Engineering, entertainment, art and design.


Exploration of making “widgets” using our program’s 5 C’s recipe:
– Courage: to think anew, to share your ideas and articulate them clearly
– Care: to avoid intentional harm from your actions or ideas
– Creativity: to recalibrate, revise,, or restart when things don’t go according to plan
– Commitment: to an idea or process and the willingness to see it through, even when it is no longer fun or exciting.
– Community: because sharing with others is how we bond and grow together ❤
