Cadettes engage all five senses as they clear the air—their own and Earth's.
Girls learn to assess air quality inside and out, getting an aerial view of everything from cigarette smoking to noise in the air to deforestation.
Along the way, they try some scientific experiments (that could even double as magic tricks to share with Brownies).
As they enjoy creating some "breathing room" in their lives, Cadettes may also find a new flair, think about "Hair," and perhaps even try making an éclair.
After becoming more Aware, the girls go on to Alert others to act for air, and then Affirm their impact on Earth, as they add these three uplifting leadership awards to their collection of Girl Scout honors.
