Girl Scout Programs

Everything a Girl Scout does centers around STEM, the outdoors, development of life skills and entrepreneurship, and is designed to meet her where she is now and to grow along with her. Lake Erie Nature & Science Center is proud to offer a variety of Girl Scout programs for Daisies through Seniors that utilize our natural setting, live animal collection, public-access planetarium and highly trained staff. Our programs meet the Girl Scout Curriculum Standards and feature STEM education badges including space science and mechanical engineering.
