That's right, there is a special Girls Scout day at that awesome place in Florida where space nerd dreams come true. Remember that post I did earlier this month, telling you guys all about our trip-- The One in Which We Went to Space.
The Salute to Girl Scouts event takes place this weekend, and even though we can't attend, I wanted to make sure that mention it in case there is anyone in the area that might want to attend. From KennedySpaceCenter.com:
Come out and celebrate the 100th anniversary on March 31, 2012, with a special "Salute to Girl Scouts" program followed by a Salute to Girl Scout Overnight Adventure.
This year's Salute to Girl Scouts program emphasizes the importance of robotic exploration. Guests will be toured through Exploration Space: Explorer's Wanted and the Mars Rovers exhibit, and will learn about the importance of each of the rovers they will see. Scouts will also get to participate in a hands-on activity of building an end effector "grappling device."
There will also be a special meet and greet with astronaut Susan Kilrain, a former Girl Scout who logged 471 hours in space! When we went down, we didn't find out which astronaut would be available for the meet and greet till we arrived.
