So NO face to face scouting yet but we are working on getting back together asap. So zoom again tonight and showing off our bird water feeders from our weekly challenge followed by The Countryside Code and Kahoot quiz on same. We couldn’t get the Who Wants to be a Millionaire quiz due to tech problems but spoke about next week.
This weeks homework (weekly challenge) was to build a simple Morse code device using sound or light to deliver a message which the troop then worked out the phrase or saying.
Lots of different designs including the human voice!
We then challenged our knowledge with a Kahoot quiz. In the second 40 minutes we ran a riddle scavenger hunt around the homes.
It was good to see everyone and we had a lot of fun.
Zoom tonight for OSR Scouts started with last weeks weekly challenge The Egg Drop. There were 3 offerings and all were dropped from the first floor window, all 3 survived the fall with the eggs still intact. Bubble wrap or foam insulator was a good choice plus plenty of layers. Gj Leuan, Megan and Amy also Nathan, Jess and Sasha.
Then we moved on to this weeks challenge which was egg box masks. The leaders presented an egg box as their offering but at least the scouts had put more effort in. Some scarey looking masks.
We all then completed a Kahoot quiz on science stuff and finished off with Monsters dice game or three. Great seeing all those that could make it this evening.
OSR Scouts joined by a friend for tonight’s zoom session. We tried our hand again at modelling but this time with some professional help and instruction. Two 40 minute sessions and our models were done. Some went a bit off script but that’s the artistic licence.
Great job all and big ty to our helper.
We didn’t get time to try out the weekly challenge egg drop but will try next week.
