In support of its mission to inspire minds through nature and science, this is the third year that the Perot Museum has collaborated with Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas to host and help judge the unique Cookie Box Creations.
WHAT: Cookie Box Creations teamed up Girl Scouts in Northeast Texas with women architects and engineers to turn empty Girl Scout cookie boxes into free-standing structures.
