Gan Israel Summer Camp - Girls
This is the group
of girls attending summer camp at Gan Israel. A fine
group of young women with a thirst for new things, and rocketry
was just such an adventure!
With ages from
very young to pre-teen, we had a large group (over 40) in
three groups (two building the Whatchamacallit
kit and one building the Thing-a-ma-Jig).
It was a challenge, but OH so rewarding! Some of these
kids had very little experience in assembling anything, let
alone a model rocket. This was their first exposure, for
some, to having to read instructions and follow specific steps
towards a goal. Heck, a few of these kids didn't even
speak English! Many thanks to the helpers as they worked
with the kids to help them with each step and also acted as
translators when needed.
What amazed me the
most about those who didn't speak English was their ability to
closely watch what I was doing and then emulate it perfectly
as though they heard and understood everything I said.
This photo album
shows the work of all 3 groups. If you wish, you can go
on to the Boys Photo Album and see what they were up to as
well! The photo quality isn't that great here. I
was having trouble with the settings on my new camera, but I
am getting better...
