Girl Scouts Rock@NASA

The Girl Scouts celebrated 100 years of reaching out to young girls by rocking the National Mall on Saturday, June 9, 2012. To help commemorate the occasion, Women@NASA hosted the Girl Scouts for an engaging program in aeronautics, science, and exploration on June 8, 2012 at the Agency’s Headquarters in Washington D.C. The day consisted of speakers such as NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver, former astronauts Pam Melroy and Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper, Mars scientists, astrobiologists, and many more. Additionally, there were hands-on activities where the girls were able to take a picture of themselves on Mars, learn about geology and space, and find out where one might see NASA technology in everyday life!

To watch a recorded version of the afternoon session of the event, visit here.

Thank you, Girl Scouts, and congratulations on 100 years of positive impact on America’s youth!
