About Science Fiction Day
January 2 is Science Fiction Day. This day encourages everyone to pick up a science fiction book and immerse themselves in a new reality. Science fiction encourages us to consider that the world can be different than it is now – better or worse – and our actions will make an impact on the future.
So read a book, sing a song or play a game saluting Star Wars or Star Trek. Some books, songs, and games are suggested below.
Work on a Scouting achievement:
- The Sky Is the Limit (Tigers)
- Out of This World Nova Award (Cub Scouts)
- Reading Merit Badge (Scouts BSA)
Here are some more specific ideas to incorporate Science Fiction Day into your Scouting program:
The idea of this game is for each player to “use the force” to keep a balloon on a pool noodle light saber.
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.
The idea of this game is to put the flying saucer (a Frisbee) in its space dock (a box). Dock Your Flying Saucer Game is a good game for indoors or out. If it is windy, it is a lot more challenging outdoors.
May the farce be with you!
This silly song involves some favorite (or not so favorite) Star Wars characters.
Use the Force. Test your knowledge of Star Wars characters, vehicles and history with this fun quiz.
