Science savvy Cubs win badges

30th October 2015

Earlier this month, 110 Cub Scouts from across the Rugby District came to School for a day of Science.

The Cubs spent Saturday in the School science labs using microscopes to examine cheek cells, enjoying a science show presented by GoGecko, baking bread and making rockets, coloured fire and slime in order to meet the criteria needed to win their Scientist Activity badges.

Bilton Grange and Stretton Cubs then stayed on for a Harry Potter themed sleepover with den building in an enchanted forest, a ‘hike into hogsmeade’ and a hogwarts candle-lit feast complete with butter beer.

Maria Shawley, Assistant District Commissioner for Cubs said, ‘This is a fine example of Scouting enabling young people and adults to learn and have lots of fun’.
