A great activity for all Scout groups - a duct tape boat race!
BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Boy Scouts from Troop 368 participated in the inaugural year of the Duct Tape Boat Races earlier this month. The boat races were held at the Berkeley Heights Community Pool.
Each Patrol in the troop was given the task to build a boat out of cardboard and duct tape. Then, they were to see which of the boats would be able to float across the pool in the fastest time.
This event helps young scouts bring out their creative genius by making a design, testing it for buoyancy, and ultimately finding out which boat is the fastest.
