CREHST night awesome
On Feb. 22, Girl Scout Brownie Troop 3547 had a wonderful opportunity to attend the Columbia River Exhibition of History, Science & Technology's "Night at the Museum" event. It was totally awesome!
We went to earn our "My Community" badge, however we learned so much more. We learned about local dinosaurs and minerals and history of the Hanford site. The room with the electrical experiments was fun. We got to meet lots of people in history, such as Captain Thompson, Captain Lewis, President Kennedy and a man who had to use an iron lung to breathe because he had polio.
Some of the comments from the girls and their parents included:
Never miss a local story.
"Loved the museum! That was our first time there. It was cool!"
"Our kids were asking when we could go again."
"My favorite exhibit was watching the lady use the mechanical arm to build with the blocks."
"I loved meeting all the people from Richland's past."
It was a night these young ladies will not soon forget!
Thank you to CREHST volunteers for taking the time to teach us so much. We look forward to returning to learn more!
