Pioneering night

This evening Cassini cubs took part in a pioneering night. They made bridges out of straws and cellotape. The bridges had to span 30cm and be strong enough to support a tennis ball.

Then they learnt about Morse code and cracked some messages written in Morse code.

Finally they completed their first challenge of The Essex Challenge 2014 which was to build a shelter inside their meeting place out of materials of their choice. We chose card board boxes. Wow! Four rolls of packing tape from poundland and card board boxes keep 27 cubs amused for over half an hour!!
