Science is doing, so that makes it fun for Cub Scouts. Many of the Cub Scout achievements and electives have a science twist, so a science theme fits in naturally with your Cub Scout program.
Everyone familiar with the Star Trek series knows how much they like to beam people back and forth the transporter. Sing this song as a tribute to the series.
A while back, I posted the Fast Food Song. This week, I have a Star Wars song with the same tune. Sure, Star Wars isn’t science, but it is science fiction and it’s fun. That’s enough reason to use it to add some pizazz to any science themed meeting.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. There is an award for each discipline at each level of Scouting. The science Nova award for Cub Scouts is called Science Everywhere.
Having a science themed meeting with your Scouts? Instead of a craft, make up a batch of silly putty. This stuff is stretchy and fun to play with.
This demonstration can be used to fulfill Webelos Scientist activity badge requirement 3. It could also be used as part of a demonstration of the scientific method or a science experiment for the Science belt loop and pin from the Cub Scout Academics and Sports program.
This demonstration can be used to fulfill Webelos Scientist activity badge requirement 6: Show the effects of air pressure.It would also be a fun way to end a pack meeting or den meeting with a science theme
Use this demonstration for Webelos Scientist activity badge requirement 1: Read Bernoulli’s principle. Show how it works.It could also be done in conjuction with the Science Belt Loop and Pin from the Cub Scout Academics and Sports program.
This simple experiment to demonstrate the scientific method is always a hit with the scouts. The results are not usually what they expect. Use this to fulfill requirement 2 for the Cub Scouts Academics and Sports Program Science Belt Loop.

Do you have a Cub Scout who loves to watch the weather? Or maybe he always knows the forecast for the next week. I have one Scout in my Webelos den who is fascinated by the weather. He has made his own weather website and even brings his weather radio to camp with him.
The Cub Scout core value for the month of June is perseverance. Here is a brief Cubmaster minute to help Cub Scout understand why perseverance is important.
Webelos must learn about crystals to fulfill requirement 10 for the Webelos Scientist activity badge. I did this activity with DS, LC, and ZM when they were working on this badge. They really enjoyed it. When making the crystals, make sure they keep adding sugar until it really won’t dissolve anymore and it will be […]
With all of the rain we’ve been having lately, this seems like a good time to post this aid to help explain the water cycle. I made this aid to help my Webelos when they were working on the Weather belt loop as a requirement for the Scientist activity badge. The material also fits in […]
If you don’t have a background in science, helping your Cub Scout out with this might seem a little intimidating. But the scientific method is really very basic and only involves a few simple concepts.
If you know a rockhound, this belt loop would make a great activity for a Pack meeting.
In honor of Star Wars Day (May the Fourth be with you!), today my focus is on the Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program Astronomy Belt Loop. Help your Scouts reach for the stars by encouraging them to work on this belt loop.
Get your Cub Scouts outside to work on their Weather Belt Loop. If you don’t have time to do this at a meeting, send a copy of the requirements home with your scouts.
This project will demonstrate the water cycle to scouts. This demonstration can be used with requirement 1 for the Weather belt loop for Cub Scouts or with requirement 6 for the Weather merit badge for Boy Scouts.
