I hope the list can point me to some resources that I could use for the
Engineer Pin. Can someone give me a site for:
1. Some catapult plans - last year, we devised our own, but it was WAY
too big to fit in the truck (and the largest one at the Scout Show). I'd
like it to be scaled down.
2. Some bridge plans. We will be building small models from tooth picks,
popsicle sticks, etc. and could use some examples of the different types
of bridges, but I'd also like to try a simple lashed bridge that we can
use for the Scouts when we cross over. Someone mentioned such a bridge in
the last couple weeks, but I lost that slip of paper.... Can't seem to
come up with the right combination of "words" to do a proper Web Search.
3. A simple klondike sled plan or two. My group is so large, we've been
"dividing and conquering" so we need about 3 projects to work on at once,
then we rotate the boys between the projects.
