Lux Helps Two Girl Scout Troops Take Education Filled Excursion
With the help of some contributions from Lux Consulting Group, Inc., 2 Girl Scout Troops from the DC Metro area traveled to Savannah, GA for an educational and fun-filled week. The STEM Program, an initiative led by the US Department of Education to encourage school aged youth to become interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, influenced the first day’s itinerary. Both Troops visited the Tybee Island Marine Center for a hands-on science and biology workshop. While walking through the coastal salt marshes, the girls learned about the ecosystem of the wetlands. Next they visited the beach to explore the sand and waters in search of shells and sea creatures. The girls also visited the home of Juliette Low, founder of Girl Scouts of the USA, as well as the RM Gilbert Civil Rights Museum. The group had a wonderful trip and they were eager to share stories of their travels with family and friends upon their return. As Lux continues to be community powered and technology forward, we are proud to have supported both Girl Scout Troops on this educational adventure. With the STEM Program inspiring young minds to pursue interests in the environment, we hope these future leaders are inspired to study in these fields and improve the well-being of our communities.
