Our booth- a car for the car care workshops and dexterity boxes.

These boxes are for the dexterity test. Each box contained 3 bolts and 6 nuts. The test is to blindly put together the 3 nuts that fit the 3 bolts. All ages could give it a try, and we timed those who wanted to compete for the best time.
|Janet is timing a girl who wanted to beat the best time.|
As they completed the nut bolt combination, they would put it on top of the box
Some of the younger/ shorter girls had a hard time reaching into the boxes, so they just closed their eyes to give it a try.
For the older girls...
Tonia lead the car care workshop for Girl Scout Cadettes. She brought along a drill they could use to loosen the bolts of the air filter housing.
Giving girls the opportunity to use real tools on a real car can be very empowering.
The Cadettes took turns with the drill, loosening the air filter housing.

Cameron Won! Best time: 21 Seconds
We imagine Cameron was dragged to this event for girls - but didn't regret it after he won the prize. He tried and tried until he had the fastest time at the dexterity test.
