Pack 1860 from Sully District organized fun STEM activities which involved the entire Pack and included siblings. Five stations were set up, one for each Den, and the Cubs rotated between stations. Each station was manned by a parent volunteer.
Station One was making electricity out of Lemons, to light up a “homing beacon.” Station Two was digital logic circuits to process how computers work. Station Three applied chromatography to separate a mixture of colors and red cabbage indicator to measure pH by changing the color of a series of clear liquids. Station Four was the Index Card Tower of Power, utilizing index cards to hold up a 2 1/2 pound weight. Station Five was Ping Pong Ballistics, where a pneumatic system was used to shoot ping pong balls at different angles and measuring height and distance.
