The Engineering Explorer Post 4088 invites scouts between 13 and 21 to join us at our monthly meetings, the second Tuesday of every month, at our office in Middletown, 22 Mulberry Street. Each month we pick a different topic/activity in engineering and we explore what goes on. We have gone over solar power cars, catapults, built dams, as well as other engineering feats. Please consider joining us each month. If you have any questions or would like to attend, talk to Zachary Raessler. My contact information zacharyadam97@gmail.com.


As troops move to Scoutbook here are two links Scoutbook and Scoutbook Forums. As always if you don't find what your looking for there you can try youtube!
