Vision Awareness

Girl Scouting offers a variety of opportunities and challenges. With this in mind, the Pennsylvania Paraoptometric Association (PPA) would like to offer the Girl Scouts the opportunity to earn a Vision Awareness Patch, which has been approved by the Girl Scout Council. PPA is an association committed to enhancing the quality of eye care. We believe the activities requires for the girls to earn the patch will make them more aware of the importance of vision and good vision care. The girl’s efforts may even spark an interest in Optometry or related fields.

Roller Coaster Design Challenge

Engineers use their imaginations to solve problems. They invent and build things that can be used in the real world. Engineer your own roller coaster using GoldieBlox to see how its design affects its speed.

  1. Make a simple roller coaster car
  2. Build a model of a roller coaster
  3. Test your roller coaster

When I’ve earned this badge, I will have learned about engineering and motion by building and testing a roller coaster.

Lesson plans for this badge are available from Volunteer Toolkit or Girl Scouts Far North Council – there is no badge packet to buy.

Model Car Design Challenge

When engineers design something new, they need to think about forces like gravity and friction. Friction is a force that slows and stops moving objects. Without friction, any object that was pushed or pulled would keep moving forever. Build a model car out of GoldieBlox and test the friction of your car on different surfaces to prepare for a Troop Car Chase!

  1. Design and build model cars
  2. Use model cars to test the friction of different surfaces
  3. Race your cars!

When I’ve earned this badge, I will have learned about friction by building and testing model cars. I will know how to design and test new things that I invent.

Lesson plans for this badge are available from Volunteer Toolkit or Girl Scouts Far North Council – there is no badge packet to buy.
