Cadette Girl Scout Troop 148 of Valparaiso traveled to Woodridge, Illinois to participate in a workshop to learn how to use computer software to create movies. Sponsored by the Girl Scout Council of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana, middle school Cadette Girl Scouts from throughout the council dug into their computers on a recent Saturday.
They learned digital video basics, chose a subject, made their own film, edited it, then added title and credits. Each project was then hooked up to a viewing screen and given a private showing to the whole group. Not only did the girls earn their Digital Movie Maker proficiency badge but were excited to meet other Cadettes from around the Chicago area.
There are many young girls in the Valparaiso area who would like to join Girl Scouts but have no leaders. Adult volunteers who would like to be leaders or co-leaders please contact Beth Baker (464-2418) or email inquiries to SU12GirlScouts@yahoo.com.
