Patrol Challenge

Troop 205 has a Patrol challenge weekly as part of our normal meeting. Each patrol takes turns planning and running the Patrol challenge. This week the challenge came from Scoutmaster Mike and Mr. Steve. An engineering challenge to build a bridge made of plastic drinking straws and string that could support a “load”. The weight used to test the load was toilet paper.

Stacked high for success.

Future engineers?

Close but not quite enough to win!
I hear the toilet paper will show up again in a future challenge.
