Guides – The Science Badge & Trip to Ponderosa

Guides' Science BadgeGuides' Trip to Ponderosa


School Direct trainee Katie Spence chose the Science badge, partly because she is a Science teacher and partly because it’s an excellent opportunity to get the girls thinking about Science in a wider context, explore what interests them and provide an introduction to how fun and engaging Science is as a topic.

Also the Guides took a trip to Ponderosa Animal Sanctuary which is home to lots of exotic and rare animals. Everyone who was selected to go on the trip had shown a commitment to their Guide pack. The Guides were excited by the prospect of learning about new animals and this trip gave them the opportunity to experience learning outside the classroom setting.
