  • Want to Launch Model Rockets? Earn Space Exploration Merit Badge?
    • Connor Mullen and Mr. Phillips would like to offer Space Exploration Merit Badge. It will be open to all Scouts of any age and will start shortly after New Year's.
    • Scouts will be building and launching model rockets, and studying ballistic trajectory using a hard-boiled-egg launching air gun.
    • This will be an extra-curricular program, meeting afternoons and weekends, outside of the regular Troop meeting.
    • There will be a small cost to purchase rocket kits. Depending on the scout's choice of rockets, and the number we launch, the cost will, probably, be in the $20 to $40 range.
    • If you are interested, sign up with Mr. Phillips at a Troop meeting or by e-mail at scoutmasterjack@email.com.
