Like to explore, experiment, discover, and learn? Have you ever thought about growing up to be a scientist? Do you want to know how the Museum works? Girls will do all this and more while earning badges and learning about different scientific careers.

Each class meets from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM, is one week long, and meets at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Cost is $195 members / $225 non-members. Early drop-off and late pick-up is also available.

Brownies Super Science

Earn five badges by exploring the following themes: investigating butterflies and other insects, conducting experiments like a scientist, caring for natural resources, problem solving like an engineer, and exploring with your senses. Each day is filled with hands-on experiments, activities, and crafts. The following Girl Scout Brownie badges will be earned: Bugs, Home Scientist, Household Elf, Inventor, and Senses.

Juniors Super Science

Explore the Museum and meet the people that make it work. Conduct science experiments and building projects with a different theme each day. Using the Girl Scout Steps and science-minded methods the girls will earn the Product Designer, Animal Habitats, Gardener, Detective, and Flowers Girl Scout Junior badges.

Careers in Science: Summer Edition

Second year Juniors, Cadets, and Seniors receive the exclusive HMNS Dino patch and the Summer Careers in Science patch in this week-long companion to the Saturday series. Girls participate in experiments and make fascinating discoveries in the areas of anthropology, energy, engineering, environmental science and space explorations. They will meet with Museum staff and curators and go behind the scenes to see how things get done. This class is a must for future scientists and engineers!

Super Science classes will follow the Girl Scout steps for earning each badge using science-minded methods. Each step will be completed by conducting an experiment, visiting part of the Museum or staff, or by a craft project that reinforces a scientific concept.
