Join Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana (GSGCNWI) at our premier fall fundraising event, Smart Cookies Badge Bash, this September 23 at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago! Hosted by our Associate Board, this event will give our supporters and community the chance to experience the fun and meaning of Girl Scouting firsthand, by meeting and learning from our Girl Scouts themselves.
At this signature cocktail reception event, we are showcasing the unique experiences Girl Scouting provides at 6-8 booths headed by Girl Scout alumns from our council! Attendees will participate in hands-on activities and learn more about what Girl Scouting is like by visiting booths such as Cadette Space, Science of Happiness, and the Coding Basics booth.
We are excited to feature the Newton Busters, the FIRST LEGO League World Championships competitors, who will be present at the Smart Cookies Badge Bash with their own booth! This is an incredible team of robot designing Girl Scouts in 7th to 12th grade who utilize several programs to showcase their technical design and team performance at local, state, and national competitions. They aim to raise awareness that women represent 25% of the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) workforce, and to raise the participation of girls in STEM activities through community outreach programs. Don’t miss out on a chance to see how these robots are made and get an opportunity to drive one!
Don’t miss out!
Bring your “troop” of friends and test your skills in earning badges and patches, led by today’s Girl Scouts, while enjoying bites, beverages, music, and much more.
