Nearly 20 years ago a council staff member sent me an application to a NASA training at Macy called Exploring the Solar System. I was one of the lucky 30 out of hundreds of applicants who was selected. Over the years I went to another 6 trainings at the Johnson Space Center, Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Goddard Space Flight Center. I have stayed connected with many of the adult Girl Scouts I meet and we are a close circle of friends. My training led to STEM programs for girls, program kits, patch programs and leader and older girl trainings. I have reached thousands of girls and adults over the years. I think what I love best is the “Ah ha” moment when you see a girl has just figured out the concept I am teaching. Girl Scouts has taken me on adventures to places I may never have gone, like the extraterrestrial samples lab at Johnson Space Center, where I was able to suit up and handle moon rocks! My life is richer for the experiences I have had and the friends I have made, all thanks to Girl Scouts.
