February 11 is National Inventors Day. This day was chosen because it is the birthday of Thomas Edison, who was born in 1847. There are a lot of Scouting activities related to inventing.
Get creative with these related achievements and ideas:
- Build a Rube Goldberg Machine
- Have an Egg Drop Challenge
- Work on the Inventing merit badge
- Check out the Cub Scout Nova awards, Scouts BSA Nova awards, or Venturing Nova awards – one of them is named after Thomas Edison
