Webelos II Engineering

Great den meeting tonight. Our engineers produced terrific bridges. It was nice to see so many of the boys out tonight after our very long break. I saw the idea online suggesting we could build bridges with toothpicks and marshmallows. The problem with the idea, for me, was that we would need to let the marshmallows sit out in the air for a couple of days to harden. I didn’t have a couple of days. So, being rigidly flexible, we used gum drops.   I found a great article on bridge types and suggested the boys select a design from the list.  I found a cool site that offered some activities relating to bridges: http://www1.cyfernet.org/act-CYFAR/mom/02-08-Bridges/
