A very popular station was run by the Living Classroom Foundation - here, girls constructed boats using newspaper, straws, tin foil and duct tape and tested to see how well each design could float. The trick was that the boats had to support several dozen pennies in the process. It proved far more difficult to do than it looked. A local Daisy Girl Scout named Alexandria held the day's record with 192 pennies.
Other activities included a recycling relay race, how to make a reusable grocery bag out of old t-shirts, and learning about bats in Lincoln Caverns. Several hundred girls showed up for the event despite the drizzle and overcast skies.
