Abstract of Session/Presentation: The Girl Scout Stars team did more than just create new space science badges for all six levels of Girl Scouts. We also held workshops for amateur astronomers, museum educators and informal education folks on being more girl friendly in public engagement. Come and see what we've learned in six years of offering workshops, share your thoughts in our discussion segment, and even learn a new technique or two to add to your welcoming toolbox. We also will be highlighting some of the new evergreen materials that you can use with your club, team or for your own independent learning.
