Girl Scouts STEM Expo crossword raffle

(Added April 5, 2015: This raffle is now closed. Thank you to all who entered. Congratulations to Monica G. who won the member draw and Danielle D. who won the general draw!)

crossword gird Last Sunday, Girls’ Angle hosted a booth at the Girl Scouts STEM Expo in Framingham, Massachusetts. Visitors were challenged to accomplish 3 tasks, one of which was solving this crossword puzzle. They succeeded, so now we’re opening this puzzle to the general public. Solve this crossword alone or with friends and relatives.  Scan in or take a digital photo of your completed grid and send it to girlsanglepuzzler “at” We will randomly draw from the correct answers received by midnight on April 4, 2015 to select a “winner” and send the winner a small prize. Girls’ Angle members will be put into a separate pool for a different prize. (If you worked on this puzzle at the Girl Scouts STEM Expo, you can’t enter this raffle. Sorry!)
