STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) — Starkville Girl Scouts are taking a break from cookie sales to earn a new badge.
Several troops partnered with the chemical engineering program at Mississippi State University to help the girls earn a merit badge.
Scouts learned about heat exchange, Solar energy and robotic engineering.
One MSU helper says it’s a way to encourage a future in science.
“To try and spike their interest early is key. We don’t want them to be older and be like man I wish I had done this back in the day so we’re trying to exposing to everything we can specifically here chemical engineering,” says Eric Castleberry.
Each girl received a badge after completing a quiz on her experience.
