Join Putnam County Service Unit for Journey in a Day 2019! Girls will have the chance to learn about about the language of computers and solve problems while they earn their Think Like a Programmer Journey. Journey in a Day will start with a guest speaker that specializes in programming and then break into groups (by Girl Scout level) to work on age-specific lessons. Finally, each girl will help with a Take Action Project to help their community understand and appreciate the skills they have learned.
Registration begins at 9:30am. Journey in a Day begins promptly at 10am. Please check in at the registration desk in the Narthex at Forrest Budette. Check out is at 4pm. Parents can gather in the Narthex area and Girls will meet you there. Please make sure you sign your Girl out and pick up her badges at the registration desk before you leave.
