A group of 17 science mad Cub Scouts from Witchford and Haddenham joined Cubs from around the country as they spent a fun filled night of experiments in the London Science Museum.
During the night, the Cubs learned about how blood works in the human body, along with some explosive demonstrations and a lot of group interaction.
This was followed by a session of making their very own loudspeaker to take home and plug into their MP3 players, and a game to test how psychology controls the brain.
After a night sleeping amongst the exhibits in the space section of the museum, it was back to work with a three dimensional iMax film, followed by an interactive session in the museum’s Launchpad area, during which the Cubs experimented with pulleys, levers, hydro-electric power and a hydrogen powered rocket.
Scout leader Chris Lowe said “The cubs have had a great time exploring the London science museum.
“Where else could you sleep next to a lunar scene with moon lander and astronaut suits. They have returned really tired but they’ve had a brilliant time, which is what makes it so rewarding for us as leaders”.
