For den meeting today we went over to the Jr High and talked to the science teacher. He talked to the boys about what a scientist does. How scientist use their senses to discover and research things. The boys were able to look at and touch a coyote skull, rabbit pelt, redwood pine cone, sea creatures, and a manikin. We missed the boys who were not there. I hope we can make it up.

We will be working on the scientist pin this month. Today we talked about the Bernoulli's Principle. We watched an example online and then we did our own experiment to illustrate the principle. Then we talked about Newton's first law of motion. There was a cute illustation of this online and then we experimented with that law. We also talked about Pascal's law and some of the inventions that use the principles from that law. The boys that were there had a good time and passed off three requirements toward this pin.
