Girl Scouts create cookie box masterpieces
What many don’t know is that empty Girl Scout Cookie boxes are being used for a hands-on STEM learning experience through the annual Cookie Box Creations event.
Cookie Box Creations gives girls the opportunity to think creatively and discover more about all things science, technology, engineering and math. Girl Scouts teamed up with local architects and engineers to create free-standing structures using Girl Scout Cookie boxes.
This year’s exhibit features a theme of “Game Changing Inventions” and will be on display through March 4 at Galleria Dallas. The Girl Scouts built the masterpieces Sunday, Feb. 12. Designs will be judged by local community leaders and are evaluated in the following categories: creativity in design, engineering difficulty, adherence to theme and best use of color and materials. Awards will be given for first, second and third place. The public may vote on the People’s Choice Award now through March 4.
Seven Garland Girl Scouts participated in this activity:
