Faith United Methodist Church, 1602 E. Illinois St., Kirksville 63501

Survival skills meet science as girls design wind-powered cranks, a message-carrying car and safe shelter for their troops during a make-believe camping trip in Yellowstone National Park.  After an earthquake strikes their fictional campground, their electrical power, food and water sources are unavailable.  How will they get out of this predicament?  By applying engineering, problem-solving and design savvy to alter their situation.

$12 per girl

Deadline:  Oct. 16
