Behind the Telescope: Girl Scout Badge Day

April 22, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Edelman Planetarium at Rowan University has partnered with the Girl Scouts of Central and Southern New Jersey and NASA to increase girls’ interest and confidence in astronomy through the Behind The Telescope project.

Through Behind the Telescope, girls will have access to NASA scientists, hands-on STEM activities, and much more in public outreach events throughout the year all while earning merit badges. Find information about the next outreach event and register your scouts below.

We invite Cadette and Junior Girl Scouts to come together with fellow Earth enthusiasts and curious girls for an out-of-this-world event celebrating International Earth Day! Girls will have the opportunity to speak with Rowan University and NASA scientists studying the Earth and discover our changing planet.

Girl Scouts will begin their STEM Career Exploration badge in an afternoon packed with hands-on science demonstrations, planetarium shows, Q&A sessions with Earth-observing scientists, and a chance to view the Sun through our telescopes (weather permitting).

Cost: $5/person. Each participant will receive an Edelman Planetarium fun patch.

Register your scouts before the April 20 deadline. This event is limited to the first 100 people who register.
