Try and test your creativity with these engineering and design challenges:
Make a paper rocket out of construction paper!
Build a disposable cup tower, play around with the design to build the strongest support, and see how tall you can get!
Pick one type of engineer. With the help of the Internet or an engineer you may know, discover three things that describe what that engineer does.
Have a paper airplane competition - build different types of paper airplanes. Observe which designs can go the farthest or the highest!
Have each family member submit a design and have a competition together!
With the help of the Internet or an engineer, examine a set of blueprints or specifications. Using these as a model, prepare your own set of blueprints or specifications to design a project, and then build it!
Build an aluminum foil boat and see how much weight it can hold using pennies or marbles before it sinks. Try and change your design to improve how much it can hold.
Become a lego engineer - build a structure out of legos that is Scouting related! Share your pictures with us.
Use recyclables and create a marble course! Race marbles through your creation.

Build it up, Knock it down
(1) Discuss with other Lions things that can be built and things that can be knocked down. (3) Build structures using available materials
Requirement 3- Make two different model boats and sail them. Choose different shapes for your boats.
Requirement 3- Do a sink-or-float investigation. Explain what you learned.
(1) Pick one type of engineer. With the help of the Internet, your local library, or an engineer, discover three things that describe what that engineer does. (To use the Internet, be sure that you have a current Cyber Chip or that you have permission from your Webelos den leader, parent, or guardian.) Share your findings with your Webelos den. (2) Learn to follow engineering design principles by doing the following: Examine a set of blueprints or specifications. Using these as a model, prepare your own set of blueprints or specifications to design a project.
