Science Troop Program Feature for Scouts BSA

The Boy Scout Planning Guide suggests a  Science  Troop Program Feature for November 2013.  This science program feature offers the opportunity to plan a month’s worth of troop activities with a weather and energy theme.

The plans for the Science troop program feature can be found in  Volume 3 of Troop Program Features from BSA:

Science is a method of learning about the world by observation, study, and experimentation. We might say  that Scouting is a science because that’s the way Scouts learn.

Science Program

Younger scouts can work on their early rank requirements, including cooking, camping, hiking, and nature.  Older scouts can earn Camping, Cooking, and Weather merit badges. Other possible badge choices for this science program theme include the HikingBackpacking, and Wilderness Survival merit badges.

The featured activity for this month is an improvised campsite where Scouts can observe the weather and an obstacle  trail where Scouts encounter challenges which relate to hurricanes.
