Cubs visit INTECH

Cubs from 4th Newbury and Wash Common (Dalby) cub packs recently visited the INTECH Science Centre in Winchester.

The visit was part of the activities that the cubs were completing for their science badge and coincided with the World Space Weekend being held at INTECH. The cubs met space engineers, scientists and robots who were celebrating our connection with the Universe. Special exhibits were organised by Astrium, Rutherford Appleton and Arqiva and the cubs were able to control Mars rovers, make rockets to shoot in to the sky and to learn all about satellites and the role they play in everyday life. Some special Star Wars guests were also on hand to make sure everyone enjoyed the day. As well as the special activities for the weekend, the cubs also enjoyed some of the other experiments, learning about electricity, sound waves and  radio communications.
The fantastic setting of INTECH was also used to invest 10 new cubs into Scouting and no doubt they will remember the day they were invested. The cubs even managed to find a new storm trooper cub scout!  Lots of budding scientists enjoyed a fantastic day.
