Science and Girl Scouts Come Together at Gonzaga University


Gonzaga Day

On Saturday, April 9, the birds were chirping, the sun was shining, and the science labs were steaming for Gonzaga Science Day! A total of 38 girls in kindergarten through fifth grade in eastern Washington and northern Idaho came to Gonzaga University campus for a day of science fun. Activities included water filtering, egg dropping, and strawberry DNA extractions.

Lacey Bolin, Girl Scouts of Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho's STEM and Day Camp Coordinator, had a great time partaking in a vast array of science experiments with the participants. "The girls got to work with active Gonzaga students and had some great role models in the Gonzaga University's Society of Women Engineers," said Bolin. This partnership proved to be beneficial in allowing Girl Scouts to spend time on a college campus, work with college students, and discover just how fun science can be!
