We’ve got the MakerPlace! Based on the popular Maker Movement and the variety of makerspaces popping up in communities across the country, the MakerPlace brings science, technology, engineering and mathematics to life through designing, building, tinkering and inventing using ordinary, everyday items, gizmos, and gadgets.
Recently, Emily Sullivan from Nation’s Capitol shared her personal experience in STEM during a bipartisan Capitol Hill briefing focused on broadening girls’ experience in the STEM/Maker movement. Emily used GSKentuckiana’s MakerPlace as a prime example of how we have successfully created a lab dedicated to STEM in which more than 200 students have already participated. What an honor to have Emily choose our MakerPlace as her example to our legislators!

If you recently pulled your last box of Thin Mints or Samoas from the freezer, never fear—the 2015 Cookie Season starts January 1st! All of your favorites are on the list, plus two new cookies: Rah-Rah Raisin and the gluten-free Toffee-tastic . And, for the 11th year in a row, cookie prices remain at $3.50 per box.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program isn’t just another bake sale. In fact, it is the largest girl-run business in the world! Girls who sell cookie learn about money management, business ethics, goal setting, decision making, and people skills—concepts that are essential to developing tomorrow’s leaders.
Cookies can be purchased from a local Girl Scout, online, or at one of the many Cookie Booths in communities throughout the council. If you’re still not sure where to find cookies in your area, download the Girl Scout Cookie Locator App, available for iPhone and Android at http://www.girlscoutcookies.org.
