Cubs BLAST off Term 1 with Water Rockets Feb 2017

Cub Scouts were able to enjoy a toned down version of a traditional 2nd Gordon Scout section activity with water rockets. Our theme this term is to enjoy the outdoors while we still have daylight saving.

These rockets have a unique design modified by engineers in the 2nd Gordon leadership team to optimise flight with very simple design modifications where rockets can be built in about 10 minutes from recycled soft drink bottles, and launched with nothing more than water and bicycle pump air pressure. Firing them is always lots of fun, with some rockets going high, some far, and some spiralling out of control! Thanks again to Connor, an extra Scout leader present to supervise a second launcher, and four committed parent helpers, Toby, Mike, Eric, and Oliver who also kindly donated the very professional looking photos attached.
