We would like to do the new Webelos Elective Adventure: Engineer this spring. Has anyone done it yet? We are wondering how we should go able letting the boys plan / design their own project and building it. We would like to get it done in 2 den meetings (or 3). So, does anyone have any ideas on what we could encourage them to design such that they can build it themselves with some parental help? I think the example in the book is a table. That would be fine, but I'm guessing not many of our parents want to go purchase the wood needed for that project. And we are really tired of making bird feeders and bird houses. One idea we had was constructing a display board for their future AOL. Learn to follow engineering design principles by doing the following: a. Examine a set of blueprints. Using these as a model, construct your own set of blueprints or plans to design a project. b. Using the blueprints or plans from your own design, construct your project. Your project may be something useful or something fun.
