Next, the girls participated in four hands-on activity stations. At the first station, the Girl Scouts worked with Eric to plot-out the property deed for the Girls Scouts Building. They learned how to use engineering scales and protractors!

At the third station, the Girl Scouts had the opportunity to try their hand at some surveying equipment with Steve. He brought-in new equipment, as well as some vintage equipment, to help the girls see how the field has progressed over the years.

At the fourth station, the Girl Scouts worked with Emily Bernzott and Christina Kossis to survey the ramps inside the Girl Scouts Building. They measured different aspects of the ramps and plotted their findings on a piece of paper.
