- Attended two shows at the local university’s planetarium with the Webelos den.
- Emailed the parent of the lone Webelos scout who could not make it on options to complete the requirement
- Emailed our committee chair about some Tiger elective stuff
- Caught up on the most recent 100 Days of Scouting blog entries
So today was the day we visited the planetarium with the Webelos. We are fortunate to have one so close at the local university. On various Saturdays throughout the year they have Scout Days where they present the various planetarium shows that they have. For our trip we saw three shows “Earth, Moon, Sun”, “New Horizons” and “Wonders of the Universe.” In addition to the various shows on Scout Days, some of the professors set up telescopes to view the sun safely. Unfortunately it rained here all morning so that part of the program was scratched.
The boys really liked what they saw and heard. They even admitted to learning a few things.
Since we had recently discussed the first two requirements of the Science belt loop (discuss the scientific method and use it for a simple science experiment, this was an excellent opportunity to complete the last requirement of visiting a science facility in a very unique way.
