During the last two weeks, mysterious events have been taking place each night and Girlstart’s campers have been working hard to get to the bottom of it all!
Campers collected fiber and hair samples to analyze under a microscope. By comparing the evidence they were given to the structures and characteristics of their samples, the girls were able to match the culprit.
They also found a lip print at another scene. Since lip prints are as unique as fingerprints, they can be classified to match their suspects.
Girls discussed the purpose of toys as well as the different ideas behind the design of toys. They were challenged to take apart a simple machine toy, figure out how it works and return it back to working order! They also worked in groups to create a new toy prototype out of a variety of materials.
Using Google SketchUp, the campers were able to take their toy ideas and make them into a 3D prototype. They were printed to take home at the end of each week.
