Hundreds of Girl Scouts Reach for the Stars in Rocket Competition
SOURCE: Hobby Space – Michelle Jorgensen from Colorado, was the first Girl Scout to win nationally in the Reach for the Stars ~ Rocket Competition. She competed in 2009 with Troop #337 at the Challenger Learning Center of Colorado. She was followed in 2010 by Azriel Clary who competed during a camp-in with the Girl Scouts of West Central Florida.
Actually – there have been three Girl Scout national winners. Taylor Goodwin competed with her class at Penrose Elementary School in Colorado. But, she got word that she was a national winner on her way to Girl Scout summer camp. Spurred on by these national wins, Girls Scouts across the country have turned out to compete in the fifth annual Reach for the Stars ~ National Rocket Competition.
Funding from the National Girls Collaborative Project, the Gammons Charitable Foundation and the Florida Space Grant Consortium helped bring the Reach for the Stars ~ National Rocket Competition to Girl Scouts in across the nation.
