Rock Solid Science is a great resource for Girl Scout leaders and source for STEM activities and hands-on workshops. We offer fun programs that spark interest in science and tie specific badges to journeys. Workshops are customized to meet the needs of your group. Summer field trip programs, rock and mineral workshops, geode cracking and making terrariums are a few of our favorite programs. Custom made Geology badges and pins are also available upon request.
