Collection for
Girl Scout Gold Award Project


Girl Scout Ambassador, Emma Schrier

needs your help with her Gold Award.


My project is focused on exposing students to
various science related topics through the development of science kits/boxes that I will
assemble and provide to local libraries, after-school programs, community centers, etc.

Below is a list of needed supplies. Any donation is appreciated and will help immensely with my project:


5.2- 6 qt. plastic storage containers with lids

bottle caps

rubber bands

popsicle sticks


red solo cups

I will be collecting these items at Temple Sinai’s Mitzvah Day this Sunday and will also have a table at Mitzvah day from 10-11am to do a few science experiments with the kids.
