Workshops and events will engage Scouts in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) related activities designed specifically for Girl Scouts. The Amazeum also offers workshops and events for Cub Scouts. Check out the FAQ sheet for additional information. 

Badge Workshops    

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are providing multiple options for Girl Scout workshops for Fall 2020: virtual and in-person at the Amazeum.  In November, we will make a decision about the format for workshops in Spring 2021. 

Virtual:  Girl Scouts will engage in a variety of unique, hands-on STEAM challenges and experiences from their homes. Materials for activities will be provided in kits. Kits can be picked up a week in advance. During the workshop, an Amazeum educator will lead the Girl Scouts through activities via Zoom video call. 

In-Person: Workshops will happen after hours at the Amazeum on a Monday evening from 6-8 pm. Workshops will have a reduced capacity of 10 Girl Scouts and up to 4 leaders per workshop. Educators, Girl Scouts and leaders will be required to wear face coverings during the workshop. Girl Scouts will be given a kit which will include all supplies needed to complete their discoveries – no sharing required! After the program, Amazeum educators will clean and sanitize the kits.  

Troop Leaders: registration for badge workshops is through the Girl Scout Council using links in the chart below. Advanced registration and payment required.  

Fee per Girl Scout: $15 

Chaperones: 1 Troop Leader and 1 Co-Leader are free
