If you are a Junior Girl Scout leader and would like to use this kit to complete your "Science Discovery" Junior Badge here is our suggestion for fulfilling the requirements. Of course, it is not meant to infringe upon your own interpretation of the badge or the requirements printed in the badge book.

Requirement 1 - Science Becomes Art
Break a geode into pieces. You might get lucky and find a crystal inside. 90% of the geodes will have crystals inside. Pick out a piece and use the included hemp to make it into a necklace. You'll need your own hammer, scissors and a low temp hot glue gun. Project will take about 20 minutes to complete once you have your goal decided.

Requirement 3 - Water Tricks
Use the included eye dropper to see how many drops of water you can get on a penny. The results will surprise you. Allow 10 minutes for this experiment and pennies are not included in the kit.
