Roosevelt Island Girls Scout Brownie Troop 3233 Leaders Susy del Campo and Fay Christian report:
Girl Scouts Brownie Troop 3233 are inviting all Roosevelt Island Community to
participate in our project, which is fun, exciting, a mystery, safe and STEM
Our troop will be planting STEM Kindness Rocks, that we call “Port Key
all around the Island. We call them Port Keys because each of them is unique
and each has a code that needs to be cracked or decoded to reveal what we want
to transmit to our community, and because they will transport you to a
place full of love, kindness, respect and where you will feel happy.
Our Girl Scout Brownies created together the Port Key Rock Decoder, seen
below,The Port Key Rocks will be planted this Monday April 5th in the afternoon. We
encourage all to participate finding as many rocks you can, decoding them and
then you can email us pictures to
or use hashtag #ritroop3233 on Instagram.
We ask that you leave the rocks where you find them, so more children, teens
and adults have an opportunity to find one and try their STEM abilities. We
are planting 40-43 Port Key Rocks.
Why we are doing this? This is a Take Action Project for our community, so the
Brownies can complete their “Think Like a Programmer” series, which they have
been working on online with a Harry Potter theme for the past 4 weeks.
