The Trip

Late last year the W Foundation approached Girl Scouts of Northern California with an offer to help arrange a trip for girls to see the launch of the shuttle Endeavour at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The W Foundation has worked with NASA to offer this opportunity to kids throughout the past several years. Through the hard work of Mark Annis with the W Foundation, Wendy Holforty with NASA, and Heather Vilhauer with Girl Scouts the trip was planned and six girls from throughout Girl Scouts of Northern California were selected to attend. The girls attended two pre-launch meetings before the trip began to get to know each other, to learn more about NASA, and to plan the logistics of the trip. After the trip the girls will be preparing a video about the launch to show to Girl Scout groups about their experience.
