Girl Scouts Attend Space Camp in Arizona

Girl Scouts in Tucson, AZ, are learning why astronauts eat tortillas, among other things. Arizona's Fox 11 reports that Girls from third to sixth grade are at NASA camp and are learning from experts about space travel and robots, plus what astronauts eat. NASA and the Girl Scouts of the USA are committed to inspiring young women to pursue careers in science, technology and mathematics (STEM). We provide education materials and training to Girl Scout leaders, who help NASA fulfill its mission to inspire the next generation of explorers.
