Science Troop Program Feature

Science Troop Program Feature

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.

In this program feature we will explore two scientific subjects, weather and energy. During troop meetings, Scouts will discover how to use weather signs. They will also learn about the importance of conserving energy sources.

The big event will be a weather bivouac. Ask patrols to predict the weather for the bivouac as the date draws near. The highlight of the bivouac will be an adventure obstacle trail with problems patrols might have to solve during a hurricane.
