Water Rockets challenge

Date: 21st June 2022 Location: Bushy Park Sports Club Sections: Scouts, Explorer Scouts

NPL is holding their annual Water Rocket Challenge on the evening of Tuesday 21 June 2022 at the Bushy Park Sports Club, Teddington.  For those who haven’t been before it’s a large, fun event where teams pit their skills against each other to build and launch their rockets.   Full details are at www.NPL.co.uk/wrc and here is a short clip of a previous event.Water rockets are very easy to make and scouts often send teams.

This year Andrew Hanson, Outreach Manager at NPL has offered to mentor new teams before the event if they need some help. He is happy to come along to your meeting and in an hour can help you build rockets, and train leaders how to launch them. All kit provided (excluding empty 2 litre fizzy drinks bottles, which you will need to collect in advance). Please contact: andrew.hanson@npl.co.uk to arrange a date.

This year the event will raise money for the Richmond District team going to the World Jamboree who are helping run the water rockets event.  The more teams participating the more fun the evening so get your teams registered!

Note that the event itself is not a Scout-led event
