Now that you’re mentally and physically ready for anything after last week’s adventure in the Philippines, hold on to your hat—the compass has transported you to South Korea!
South Korea is known for innovative businesses like Samsung or creating inventions like the first cancer-fighting nanobots. With technology advancing and cities growing in various parts of the world, we need to be creative in how we plan for the future, making sure that everyone can be a part of our society.
Have you ever done an activity related to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics)? If so, you’ve already worked towards Goal #9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure. What better place to further sharpen your STEM skills than South Korea?
While they continue to plan the World Scout Jamboree 2023, your South Korean Scout friends have lent you their robot to show you around Seoul. Oh no, the robot’s hard drive fan is malfunctioning! It quickly overheats, sparking a small fire. Your Section must spring into action, using all of the GADGETS in your pack that you’ve collected so far, to extinguish the fire.
In this final week of our challenge, it’s time to put your creativity and innovation to the test as you build a Rube Goldberg machine. Get resourceful with your GADGETS and other items to build a chain reaction that can safely put out a small flame.
