Bear Den Update 01/20/2020

Bear Adventure: Super ScienceTonight the bear den completed the Super Science Adventure in full (requirements 1 through 5). While the Bear Scout may have gotten a little messy they gained a lot of knowledge. With science being an everyday wonder that Scouts can learn more about by simply using ordinary household supplies, their actions created amazing reactions in fun investigations while exploring static electricity, oil and water, sinking versus floating, and color morphing and layering.

The specific requirements covered were:

  1. Make static electricity by rubbing a balloon or a plastic or rubber comb against another material, such as a fleece blanket or wool sweater. Explain what you learned.
  2. Conduct one other static electricity investigation. Explain what you learned.
  3. Do a sink-or-float investigation. Explain what you learned.
  4. Do a color-morphing investigation. Explain what you learned.
  5. Do a color-layering investigation. Explain what you learned.

Their takeaways for the evening were: following directions; introduction to the scientific method; learning the scientific law of action and reaction; and finding new ways to be creative.

Here are a few of their creations:
