Girl Scouts of CA’s Partners with MOXI, The Wolf Museum
Ventura — Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast (GSCCC) and MOXI, The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation have teamed up to offer a new Girl Scout patch, the council’s own GSCCC MOXI patch. This patch program provides girls and troops of all levels a fun and interesting way to engage with the exhibits at MOXI in Santa Barbara. To earn it, Girl Scouts can download the program and take steps to Discover, Connect and Take Action.
“By using hands-on STEM-based activities, Girl Scouts of all ages can make the connection between what they are learning and the outcome,” said Jody Skenderian, Chief Executive Officer of Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast. “It’s an interactive experience that will help foster a curiosity for science as girls collaborate with each other and create their own projects.”
Once girls in Girl Scouting complete the patch activities, they fill out a form and get information on purchasing the patch.
“We are so excited to have a MOXI patch with Girl Scouts and a new way to connect with girls throughout the region who are the next generation of innovators and critical thinkers. Our hope is that members of area troops will be inspired to pursue further science-related studies, hobbies or careers while working toward earning their patch at MOXI,” said Ron Skinner, Director of Education at MOXI.
On July 6, Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Sylvia Acevedo toured MOXI to promote STEM awareness and the GSCCC MOXI patch program.
