Tables featuring safety information, crafts and LEGO robots lined the walls of the Mountlake Terrace Library’s meeting room Saturday afternoon as the Mountlake Terrace-based Girl Scouts of Western Washington Troop 50529 invited community members to a pop-up party and safety fair.
During the fair, members of the Mountlake Terrace Police Department and South County Fire taught attendees fire and safety tips, and craft tables allowed children to show their creative side. The fair also gave Troop 50529’s robotics team, RoboGirls, the chance to share their robot and competition info for First Lego League. Also attending the fair was a member of the First Robotic League Team, Terrific Tech Bots, to show the team’s work.
The fair was part of Troop 50529’s work toward receiving its Bronze Award, which involves a community safety project.
Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) Director of Active Transportation Barb Chamberlain handed out information about career opportunities in transportation. She explained that WSDOT is currently engaging the public across the state for input while it revises the state’s Active Transportation Plan, which focuses on human-powered activities such as walking and bicycling.
