The place to come to find out what Meriden Scouts have been doing and what we have planned with the 1st Meriden Scout troop.

An evening of surviving a crash landing on the moon, creating a solar system and launching some rockets.

As normal we started with a few games.  I can't even remember what game this was, but I thought the picture was worth publishing any way!

After working through how best to survive on the moon the patrols used balloons to model the planets in our solar system.

After this it was time to shoot for the stars with our film canister rockets.  Many rockets were made, many photos were taken, many take-offs were missed...

And then the trail of a launch finally proved we had lift off.
