The learning doesn’t have to stop just because the school year is completed. For instance, throughout this week, the schoolyard at Mountain Elementary School has been bustling with learning activity.
About 120 girls from Girl Scout service units 22 and 23 have been exploring water Monday through today during the Twilight Camp with the help of about 50 volunteers.
From blowing bubbles through tin soup cans to peering into a microscope to observe tiny life thriving in a drop of water from Ashley Pond, Girl Scouts learned just how many aspects there are to this natural element.
The Twilight Camp, which has been held for 16 years, has always featured a scientific theme, camp director Stephanie Mitchell said. Past themes included the sky and earth, and next year will feature ecology.
“It’s really good for girls to be exposed to science, especially in Los Alamos, because it’s a science community,” she said. “(It’s) good exposure. (The camp shows) that science can be fun.”
Participants are not only learning, but junior scouts are able to earn a water wonders badge while Brownies can earn a “water, water, everywhere try-it” badge, Mitchell said.
