A Chemistry Education Program Serving the Girl Scouts – Heart of Missouri Council
Magic of Chemistry™ is a hands-on, inquiry-based educational program for junior Girl Scouts (fourth through eighth graders) in the 68 mid-Missouri counties served by the Heart of Missouri Council. It is designed to ignite girls’ interest in science. Workshops are held twice a year on the University of Missouri-Columbia campus. Four different workshops — Discovery of Crystallography, Fun with Polymers, Chemistry of Color, and The Mystery at the Museum — rotate annually, allowing juniors to attend a different program every year. In small groups, the girls visit the various workshop stations, where girls complete the experiments. Each workshop has nearly one hundred girls participate, resulting in a total of two hundred girls per year from throughout the state of Missouri!
For the Girl Event Fee of six dollars, they receive: all program supplies, custom participation patches, cute T-shirts, and a buffet lunch in the campus dining halls. Any chaperons attending are asked to pay a fee of ten dollars which will cover the payment of their buffet lunch. Please see the links on the right for any additional information or to contact one of the program coordinators.
Registration is taken care of by the Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland.
