Cub Scout Archives: Invention Convention

Invention Convention Theme
Here is what the program helps say about this theme:

“This month’s theme promotes creativity, imagination, and resourcefulness. Close your eyes and dream. Cub Scouts will learn that the sky’s the limit when it comes to a great idea. The boys will also see that anyone with an idea and the desire can be an inventor.”

Book Review: Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction  My boys loved this book! It shows them how to make miniature catapults, bows, and other projectile machines out of common office supplies. This book would make a great basis for a troop open house or a just for a fun meeting. The projects in the book are perfect for 10 to 13 year old boys, which is usually the age group we target most heavily for recruiting. It could also be used with the Engineering merit badge or the Webelos Engineer activity badge.
