Join us as Girl Scouts Wilderness Road Council and the University of Kentucky; College of Engineering celebrates the 13th annual G.E.M.S event. Calling all future Marine Biologists, Pilots, Civil Engineers, Geologists, and Astronomers. Do you like solving mysteries using math? Or how about creating your own video game? Want to design a futuristic transportation device? Who says girls can’t do Science? Girl Scouts can do all of these things and more! Girls will receive a custom-made G.E.M.S patch, swag bag, 4 engaging workshops and the opportunities to win prizes throughout the day. Again this year, we will have an optional Egg Drop Challenge for troops. New for girls is the GEMS Patch Design Contest. Come discover why G.E.M.S is such a “joule!"
