This week, Girl Guides of Canada staff returned to the office after the holiday break to start work again on all things awesome and amazing for Guiding. And a few staff members brought their personal ‘in house experts’ with them into the office – their daughters.
Not ones to let an opportunity to hear directly from girls pass us by, we put these experts to work with ‘research’ in our national archives and by testing out some new STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) activities.
We usually don’t allow researchers to use markers in the archives but made an exception for these Spirograph designers.

Penny sets to work on a building activity from the upcoming World Hunger Day program. Our programming team was grateful for the hands-on input in designing an activity that will work well with Sparks’ smaller hands.
Thanks to Penny and Rachel for providing your expert advice while visiting the national office.
