ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC)- Rochester-area Girl Scouts went from "slime" to crime scenes and beyond on Saturday to learn about science.
About 275 girls came to the Al Sigl Center for STEM-A-Palooza, a chance to get into the world of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math... or STEM.
The event was open to girls between kindergarten and 12th grade, with the science lessons designed to be age appropriate.
The girls were enthusiastic about the results, with one girl scout named Keira talking about an experiment where they made slime and then had an experiment to turn it different colors.
The adults were happy as well.
"We know that STEM is the future, and we want to make sure our girls are ready for those jobs that are coming into engineering fields, the mathematics fields, and if they are not ready, we don't want them to get left behind. So we wanted to make sure they're ready at a young age," said Ebony Singleterry.
This year's event gave the girls demonstrations and projects in fields like chemistry, physics, crime scene investigation, construction, and electricity.
