Space Derby

Space DerbyThis past weekend A participated in his first “Space Derby” for Cub Scouts and so of course his model was in the design of an X-Wing….

The rocket was basically a solid piece of balsa wood with a hole in the center, which meant it had to be glued together…

A’s X-Wing didn’t win the heat, but it made it all the way to the end and he was very excited about that!
