Girl Scout troops launch a boat and plenty of educational opportunities

Photos and Story by | Start the discussion

IMG_2001In July, Girl Scout troops from Woodburn and Forest Grove partnered with PCC to build a 12-foot skiff and test it in the Sylvania pool. The group of young girls built the small boat under the direction of the Wind and Oar Boat School, which engages underserved youth in STEAM projects. For many of the young students, this was the first time using tools or building something from start to finish and had to carefully plan to build a working boat.

The new skiff is destined for a local Girl Scout camp.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
