We welcome siblings and parents of troop members! While space is limited in the workshops, we are happy to welcome siblings of troop members and extra parents who want to come along for the day and have some fun in the science center while the troop members are taking part in the workshop. Siblings and parents of girls taking part in the workshop will receive $5 off admission to Harsco Science Center when they register together at the Whitaker Center Box Office on the day of the troop’s visit.
