Last weekend I helped put on GIRL Extravaganza 2017! Basically an exhibitors fair for Girl Scouts, community members, & families that consisted mostly of STEM activities!
It was SO. MUCH. FUN. Participants were able to ‘play with’ interactive displays, robots, 3D printers, make slime, wood carve, create art for the community, dress-up, & even try out a mobile Ninja course!
Putting together an event of 500+ participants isn’t always the easiest (in fact if you can do it without stressing out like a crazy person, I think you’re magic), but it’s so much sweeter when you see the faces of kids & adults light up! Maybe my favorite part of the whole event was seeing the girls try out the warped wall! They didn’t stop, or even think that they couldn’t do it… they just tried their hardest & encouraged their friends to do the same. ❤ LOVE. I know when I try something new now, I always belittle my attempt. Something I took away from last weekend was to never doubt yourself and JUST TRY.
Also, I’m ready for a chill weekend, but balloon fiesta starts tomorrow, so that’s not happening!
