Girl Scout Events
Cadettes, Seniors, Ambassadors
Pikes Peak

This event is for Cadette, Senior and Ambassador level girls.
This event costs $10.00. The deadline is April 15th, 2017.
(1) Hydrogen/Oxygen Rockets (40 minutes): In this very cool chemistry and engineering activity, the girls will experiment to determine the best combination of hydrogen gas and oxygen gas to launch a small rocket. They will use chemical reactions to generate hydrogen and oxygen to fuel their rocket, ignite the rocket, and see how far it travels.

(2) Chemical Reaction Mania! (40 minutes): This activity is chemistry at its finest: chemical reactions that change temperature, produce gases, use catalysts, and others! Fun, fun, fun are the three words that best describe this activity!

(3) Chemical Changes: What is this Powder? (40 minutes): Chemists often use chemical reactions/changes to identify substances. In this experiment, the girls will conduct chemical reactions on different white powders and use their results to identify an unknown. This is a great chemistry experiment!

(4) Chemical Magic Show (50 minutes): The workshop closes with a chemical magic show put on by members of the Department of Chemistry, with assistance from the girls . . . this is really fun!

Snacks will be provided!​
