Welcome to the first-ever Space Science Badge kits offered by the GSAC of GSKSMO! We hope that these activities, as well as the fun live events , give girls, troops and families a chance to connect with each other and learn new, exciting facts about space and our amazing girl members of the Girl Scout Astronomy Club. This activity kit is fun to complete on your own, with your family or with your troop.
WHAT’S INSIDE THE BADGE KITS
Inside these Badge Kits you will find all the materials you need to complete several exciting projects about the planets, solar systems, and MORE! This booklet contains an introduction and step-by-step instructions for each activity, as well as information about the live virtual events. We will also be highlighting one of NASA’s latest missions - The Artemis Program. During the Artemis Program, NASA will land the first woman and first person of color on the Moon, using innovative technologies to explore more of the lunar surface than ever before.
It’s all about the Space!
