Abstract: Girl Scouts of Northern California was in its third year of offering an astronomy club for middle and high school girls when shelter-in-place hit. We'll share our successes and challenges of keeping girls engaged and encouraging them to take leadership roles as we pivoted to the virtual world. Participate in the games, polls, activities, and sky viewing girls enjoyed. Hear about the impact of the guest speakers and how we collaborated to prepare for their visits. Bring your suggestions and questions to share during the discussion time.
