The event’s primary focus was to provide an interactive platform for children.
Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) recently teamed up with the Girl Scouts of
California’s Central Coast (GSCCC) to present a one-of-a-kind event, the Daisy Friends & Robots Open House.
The event took place on June 3rd at the Westview Village, an affordable housing development located at 1187 Riverside St. in Ventura. With an array of engaging activities, attendees had the opportunity to get hands-on experience exploring rocket launchers, ball shooters, straw rockets, robot hands and robot tables all designed to spark curiosity and foster creativity.
The event’s primary focus was to provide an interactive platform for children to engage with robotics while making new friends within their own neighborhood. By combining the principles of STEM education with the spirit of community, SoCalGas and the GSCCC aim to inspire young minds and ignite a passion for science and technology.
“We are thrilled to partner with the Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast for the Daisy Friends & Robots Event,” explains Maria Ventura, Senior Public Affairs Manager from SoCalGas. “This collaboration provides a unique and memorable experience for families in Ventura, while also promoting the importance of STEM education in underserved communities.”
Thanks to the generous support of SoCalGas, the Daisy Friends & Robots event was a resounding success, attracting a remarkable attendance of 175 people. It was a powerful testament to the significance of developing the next generation of women leaders. As an event focused on recruitment, it holds special importance in encouraging girls from underserved communities to become Girl Scouts.
By actively engaging girls from underserved communities, the council aims to break down barriers and provide equal opportunities for all. It’s a reminder that every girl deserves a chance to be part of the Girl Scouts and unleash her full potential.
