North Area Solar Oven Competition, 26th August 2017

Written by: Trisha Chan, Senior Sixer & Scribe

Today, our cub scout meeting was very special and different. Because, three different Cub Scout units came to our school! They were going to compete against us in the Solar Oven Challenge.

There were two rounds, the first round was judged based on Construction, Creativity and Design. The second round was based on how well the oven worked. We had two hours to complete our solar oven.

Halfway through the two hours, we ate a snack, which consisted of curry puffs and egg with mayo sandwiches. Then, we got right back to work! Then, after we were done with our solar ovens, we all worked together to clean up the Kidzone.

After that, we went for lunch! We had chicken, sunny side up eggs, brow and white rice, boiled cabbage with carrots, and fish balls. Then, we sang some songs!


Soon after, the winners were announced! When we heard the name of the winners, we felt sad, as many of us had made friends among the other units. However, we knew that all good things had to end, so, when it was time to say goodbye to the other cub scouts, we said it happily.
