Girl Scouts Earn Aerospace Badges At Greenville Downtown Airport

Girls Treated To Seminars, Tours, And Lunch

Twenty-nine Fourth and fifth grade Girl Scouts earned their Aerospace Badges last Saturday (May 7) at the Greenville Downtown Airport in South Carolina. The badge workshop was offered at the airport's Runway Cafe in partnership with Mad Science of the Upstate, a local science enrichment provider, according to Lynn Arve, Director of Program Services, Girl Scouts of South Carolina - Mountains to Midlands.

Greenville Jet Center transported the Girl Scouts across the tarmac to tour the air traffic control tower, and Special Services Corporation let them see their aircraft maintenance facility and provided a plane for them to look inside the cockpit. Then the Girl Scouts completed a variety of hands-on projects that are required to earn the badge.

Other activities included making a paper airplane, which the girls then modified to see see how adding flaps changes the flight of the plane. There was a model rocket launch, and the girls also made and flew their own kites. They ended the morning with lunch at the Runway Cafe watching planes take off and land.

"Many pilots discovered their interest in aviation in their youth," stated Joe Frasher, Airport Director of Greenville Downtown Airport. "Our industry is facing a future pilot shortage and we are always looking for ways to inspire youth with the awe of aviation. Maybe one of these girl will grow up and fly for Southwest Airlines."
