Queen of Apostles Cub Scout Pack 328 Annual Water Rocket Derby

Queen of Apostles Cub Scout Pack 328 Annual Water Rocket Derby

October 2015

 
Queen of Apostles Cub Scout Pack 328 recently held its annual Water Rocket Derby. What a “blast”! Thirteen Cub Scouts, boys in the 1st – 5th grade, made their rockets out of empty soda bottles and cardboard tubes. Parent volunteer Denver Lewis helped the boys learn how fins help guide their rockets, and how water and compressed air act as an engine.
Other parents helped by timing each rocket’s flight. The rocket that stayed in the air the longest (average of three flights) won the coveted hang time award. Several design awards were also presented for best paint job, fastest looking, funniest, most creative, and best overall design. After a day filled with fun and learning, the Q of A scouts are looking forward to hosting the water rocket booth at the Silicon Valley Monterrey Bay Council’s Scout o Rama next May.
I have to thank Christy Choate for her help writing this, and for the photo.
