Sunday, October 3, 2010 • Caltech in Pasadena

2010 GSGLA Family Science Festival
was a HUGE success!

Pasadena, CA - The 2010 GSGLA Family Science Festival exploded with fun Sunday, when a crowd of more than 2,000 Girl Scouts and their families converged upon the campus of Caltech to discover the innovative world of science, technology, engineering, and math! The event, held in association with Jet Propulsion Laboratories (JPL), featured more than 70 exhibitors showcasing science demonstrations and hands-on experiments. There were robots, rockets, rovers and even roosters!

JPL's Green Club was on hand to show off their electric car, while the mini Mars rover rolled over interested participants, and girls and tagalongs were shown how an infrared camera reveals unknown heat in our world and beyond! Iridescent helped kids build a model airplane and understand the engineering that makes planes fly. Event sponsor Time Warner presented the Mad Scientist who taught his booth visitors how to make slime.

Girls also had the chance to participate in a live taping of the “The Loh Down on Science LIVE!” radio show pilot. And the Bubble Mania Challenge was a big hit with glorious bubbles and ingenious bubble wands made by Girl Scouts.

GSGLA thanks JPL’s Helenann Kwong-Fu, Kim Lievense and Dr. Peg Frerking, and Caltech (especially Eric Wood) for helping to host this event. Kudos also goes to Sandra Tsing Loh and “The Loh Down on Science Live!” cast and producers for kicking off the festival with an awesome hour of fun and theatrics. GSGLA also thanks our sponsors Symantec and Time Warner for supporting the value and importance of STEM in the lives of youth.
