Good afternoon,
I'm excited to share with you an exciting opportunity for your Scouts! ScienceSouth in conjunction with Francis Marion University's Dooley Planetarium will hold a robotics workshop on Saturday, September 12 at ScienceSouth for both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. This opportunity is exclusively open to ACTIVE scout members and will be offered in two sessions. The first session runs from 9:00-11:00 am and is for children in Grades K-4, while the other session runs from 12:00-2:00 pm and is for scout members in grades 5-10. These sessions will be offered on a first come, first served basis. Please keep in mind that we have 25 spaces available for the morning session and 40 spaces for the afternoon session. ScienceSouth must receive registrations by Wednesday, September 9. Below you will find descriptions of both workshops.
