Getting Started in Pinewood Derby - Step by Step Workbook to Building Your First CarBook Review: Getting Started in Pinewood Derby  I recently received a copy of Getting Started in Pinewood Derby by Troy Thorne.

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.
