The National Science Partnership is a collaboration between The Franklin Institute Science Museum and Girl Scouts of the USA.

Four NSP kits will soon be available nationwide to any leaders, councils, and educators interested in obtaining them. See our FAQs for more information.

Choose from:
Science Wonders Science Wonders: A Volunteer's Guide to Brownie Girl Scout Activities
Space Explorer Space Explorer: A Volunteer's Guide to Brownie Girl Scout Activities
Science Sleuth Science Sleuth: A Volunteer's Guide to Junior Girl Scout Activities
Weather Watch Weather Watch: A Volunteer's Guide to Junior Girl Scout Activities

The National Science Partnership program kits each contain a "Volunteer's Guide" including easy to follow instructions, hints about how to modify and extend the activity for your troop or group, and explanations of the scientific principles explored in each activity.

Also included in every NSP kit are enough consumable materials for at least 15 Girl Scouts. We have carefully considered the quality, affordability and accessibility of the materials in each kit and we've chosen to include materials that you would not generally find in your home or grocery store, such as hand lenses and iron filings. In addition to the materials in the NSP kit, you will need to use common household items for most of the activities, i.e. plastic cups, scissors, and markers.
