Current fourth- and fifth-grade girls in the Valley View School District have until the end of the month to sign up for a unique summertime opportunity to have fun and make new friends while learning about astronomy and engineering through a hands-on science program.
Known as The Science Spectacular, the Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana program will take place June 11 and 12 in Chicago with bus transportation provided from Irene King Elementary School in Romeoville and Independence Elementary School in Bolingbrook.
King and Independence will then both host the program on June 13 and 14.
Girls must sign up for all four days.
The specific schedule calls for buses to depart at 8:30 a.m. June 13 and 14 and return around 2:30 p.m. The June 13 and 14 Independence program runs from 8:30-11 a.m., while the King program runs from noon to 2:30 p.m.
The program is limited to the first 300 girls who sign up. The program is for girls who have not previously participated in Girl Scouts.
Girl Scouts will provide chaperones, but parents are also welcome to volunteer as chaperones.
Signup forms are available at every Valley View elementary school. Questions may be directed to principals at each elementary school.
