Cookie Box Creations

Cookie Box Creations teams girls with women architects and engineers, in a design contest to turn empty Girl Scout cookie boxes into free-standing structures.This activity is great for girls interested in a career in architecture or engineering to develop critical thinking skills and promote cooperation and team-building.
