Monthly CSI 'Junior' Detective offers Girl Scouts chance to solve mysteries through science, discovering clues and cracking codes
Las Vegas - Multipure, a trusted leader in the water filtration industry for over 50 years, is announcing the return of its partnership with the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada. Multipure will be hosting a new STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) series – CSI ‘Junior’ Detective.
Multipure International and Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada first teamed up in 2019 to encourage young girls to explore STEAM fields by providing hands-on activities that can broaden their knowledge of science and expose them to potential career paths. At the CSI ‘Junior’ Detective event, held on Saturday, April 29 from Noon to 2 p.m., girls will spend time in the lab with an onsite female scientist, taking part in activities to help solve a real mystery by discovering clues, cracking codes, and studying fingerprints to figure out what happened. The girls will participate in demonstrations and activities focusing on chemistry and will have an opportunity to interview the scientists.
“When COVID hit, these events were put on hold. We are thrilled to bring these popular events back again. And so are the Girl Scouts as the first class is already sold out. Not to worry though, there will be more events like these in the future,” said Jennifer Rice, Executive Vice President of Multipure. After completing the activity, participants will receive a patch designating they have earned their Junior Detective badge during this event.
Through this partnership, Multipure offers Girl Scouts (Juniors, Brownies, and Cadettes) the opportunity to discover their passions and become future scientists, engineers, leaders, and environmental advocates. “We are grateful when members of the community give the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada an opportunity to have new experiences, and Multipure has gone above and beyond by bringing the girls into their laboratory and setting up these experiments. It is a wonderful chance to get a real sense of a working lab, and for many, it will be their first time. I am sure it will encourage some to pursue a career in science even further,” said Kimberly Trueba, Chief Executive Officer.
Multipure has also created a learning experience called “Exploring Careers in STEM” where Girl Scouts (Juniors, Brownies, and Cadettes) take part in activities to gain a greater understanding of drinking water science and the workings of laboratory testing research. During Multipure’s program, Girl Scouts spend time in the chemistry and microbiology labs taking part in activities such as testing water samples for contaminants and fingerprints for bacteria. During this program, Girl Scouts earn a new STEAM patch after successful completion of the interactive learning experience.
