Bailey Goes for Gold

Bailey’s goal for her Girl Scout Gold Award project was simple: “get kids excited about science at a young age.”

Bailey, a proud Girl Scout since the second grade, organized more than 50 volunteers to help her host a free science camp for first through fifth grade students. 

“I chose this project for my Gold Award because I like science and I want children to enjoy science as much as I do,” noted Bailey. “My fantastic science teachers at Guyer High School really sparked a love and interest in science and I was hoping to do the same for the kids.”

The day camp welcomed more than 100 elementary students, and included a full day of science education and interactive experiments.

“I think my leadership skills really improved because I had to organize such a big group of volunteers and keep things moving smoothly during the event. I loved how the volunteers seemed to enjoy the day as much as the kids.”

Bailey will graduate this May and is planning on studying biology and veterinarian medicine in college.
