SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Cockroaches, ducks, and fertilizer, just a few of the things used to show a group of Girl Scouts how fun science can be.

It was all part of an event put on by the Beta Beta Beta Biology Honor Society at Morningside College in Sioux City.

Over 80 girl scouts worked on activities that explored lungs and human health, lab animals, and environmental sustainability.

One workshop on engineering had scouts build an egg drop.

"I think it's just a chance to get exposed to not only college level stuff that we do here and science but, to interact with professors and the college level biology students," Aaron Bunker, Assistant Professor of Biology at Morningside College said.

Organizers say they hope the event will open doors for girls to seek out science and math careers.
