• Girl Scout Cookie Program: The sweet spot of project-based learning

    By Michelle Higgins There are many conversations happening around project-based learning (PBL) and many teachers and educators are looking to their informal STEM partners for best practices.

This winter, why not take a closer look at what Girl Scouts in Arizona are doing?

  • Start the New Year Right!

    We committed to be better.To be better together. To spend more time with those we love,and to reach out to those we don't yet know. To get outdoors and enjoy nature's beauty,
