girl scout Workshops
Pittsburgh Glass Center offers year-round workshops for Girl Scouts to earn a variety of badges and learn about art and science. It's a great experience for Girl Scout Troops. Girls will have fun creating their own artworks and working with one another to develop important communication, leadership, and teamwork skills.
Workshops are available in person and virtually.
Although these workshops fulfill Girl Scout of the USA badge requirements, they are available to all children at the appropriate age range.
To schedule a workshop for your troop, email Kate or call 412-365-2145 ext. 214.
