About 35 local fourth and fifth graders recently gathered in Hunt Dining Hall to investigate the wonders of the natural world with help from students at Mary Baldwin College at the second annual Girl Scout Science Sleuth Day. MBC students in mathematics, engineering, biology, and more developed experiments for the Scouts, including tie-dyed T-shirt chromatography, primitive motor making, and DNA necklace creating. Maria Craig, assistant professor of chemistry, established the event at MBC in 2011. Participating Girl Scouts had the opportunity to earn three badges at the Science Sleuth Day — Making it Matter, Science in Everyday Life, and Science Sleuth.
