Girls Get Scientific Saturday


Jay Barrett/KMXT

Seeing a need for science and technology education in the job force of the future, the Girl Scouts of Alaska is presenting a series of workshops tomorrow (Saturday) at Kodiak College. Called "Women of Science – Kodiak," the program is for all girls from kindergarten through 12th grade.

The "Women of Science – Kodiak" will have a session from 10 a.m. to noon for kindergarteners through grade three, and from 1 to 4 p.m. for older girls. They will take place in the Benny Benson Building at Kodiak College.

Linda Freed is a board member of Girls Scouts of Alaska, and a former troop leader here in Kodiak.

(Science 1 41 sec "The goal is to show girls … advanced information in them.")

There will be workshops on water treatment, Coast Guard science, geology, whales, and wind turbines. And Kodiak Police Detective Ronda Hosier will lead a workshop on the kind of crime scene processing she does in her job at the Criminal Investigations Unit.

Freed said Girl Scouts in Kodiak have long sought a workshop like this.

(Science 2 23 sec "The Girl Scouts have … communities besides Anchorage.")
