The "Exploring Science" IP is an interest project from the Girl Scouts of San Diego-Imperial Council. Do seven activities including all starred activities. It is recommended the project be done in conjunction with someone familiar with at least one field of science.
science, talking with your science teachers, visiting a place of business or laboratory and talking to scientists working in one or more of the fields. ! computer science ! engineering ! math ! geology ! biology ! medicine ! chemistry ! psychology ! physics ! oceanography
For the rest of the interest project choose one area from the list above to specialize in.
3. Women have made many contributions to science. Find out about one woman in your chosen field. What were her contributions to the field and when were they made? What was her background?
description of the proposed experiment, and a list of equipment and resources needed. Show the finished proposal to a teacher, scientist, or your consultant on this project for their approval.
summary of the results and a conclusion. Discuss your project with the person who approved it.
7. Discover more about other areas of science by attending a science fair or visiting a science/technology museum. (Example: The Greater San Diego Science Fair, National Chemistry Expo.)
8. Visit a place in your community involved in some aspect of science and technology. Find out what problems they are trying to solve and methods they use to study their problems. List some of the positions available and the educational requirements for them.
9. Help a younger group of girls (or children) with a science activity. Suggestions are: holding a science day, helping Junior Girl Scouts earn a science badge, or Brownie Girl Scouts earn a Try-It, or if you are a Senior Girl Scout, helping a young group of Cadette Girl Scouts start on this interest project.
