Brownie Home Scientist BadgeSpectacular Science (Brownie)
Sunday, October 19, 1:30 - 2:30 pm or 3:00 - 4:00 pm
Chemistry is everywhere, from the soda you drink to the rockets that fly into space! Learn all about chemistry as you make your own ice cream and silly putty, create awesome explosions, learn about physics using the power of static electricity, and more while earning your Brownie Home Scientist Badge. General admission to the museum is included in registration fee.

Girl Scout Detective BadgeSherlock Scouts (Junior)
Sunday, November 16, 1:30 - 2:30 pm or 3:00 - 4:00 pm
Based on a real case, WonderLab is missing Olive, the stuffed otter, from Discovery Garden. Just like the famous Sherlock Holmes, use your science skills and power of deduction to solve the case! Learn about fingerprints, use a microscope, and talk to an Evidence Technician from the Indiana State Police Department while earning your Junior Scout Detective Badge! Admission to the museum is included in registration fee.

Girl Scout Brownie Senses BadgeSuper Senses (Brownie)
Sunday, December 14, 1:30 - 2:30 pm or 3:00 - 4:00 pm
You use your senses every day to see, smell, touch, taste, and hear, but do you really know how super these senses actually are? Find out as you go on a senses scavenger hunt, discover how to confuse your sense of taste and smell, and explore whether you are a super taster - all while earning your Brownie Senses Badge! Admission to the museum is included in registration fee. Allergy Note: We will be using apples for one of the experiments.
