On September 19 and 22, 2020, Astromaterials Research and Exploration Science (ARES) hosted a virtual Girl Scout Badging Event with Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) leading interactive activities. 

The 2-Session (4-hour) interactive event reached ~45 Girl Scout Cadettes from the San Jacinto Girl Scout Council, in the Houston, TX area. Cadettes completed activities to earn the Space Science Researcher Badge. Science Activation content, connections to Science Mission Directorate (SMD) science, and Citizen Science opportunities were shared during the event.

Feedback: "My daughter was very engaged throughout and we both thought this was one of the best virtual badge workshops she has attended and you have ignited more interest for her in the area presented."
