Scout-Guide Week 2015

scoutguideweek
For more than four decades, Scouts and Guides have celebrated Scout-Guide Week nationwide

  • In 2014, Scout-Guide Week runs from February 15 – 22
  • We celebrate this week to honour the birthday of Lord Robert Baden-Powell (Feb. 22), who, in
    1907 started the Scouting Movement at a camp on Brownsea Island in England and his wife, Lady
    Olave Baden-Powell, the World Chief Guide
  • This is a time of celebration for Scouts Canada and Girl Guides of Canada – a time when two world-
    wide youth Movements honour their heritage and a time to recognize the good work both
    Movements do for the community
  • Across Canada celebrations include camps, expeditions and mall displays, special banquets and
    parades
  • grandfondo
    Come and visit our interactive display at the Family Day Festival and Indoor GranFondo in the Field House at the Tournament Capital Centre, Sunday February 8th between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM. This event is sponsored by the MS Society.

    Results of the STEM and Community Competition

    First award ($6000 towards the trip to 2015 World Jamboree in Japan)
    James Watson, from 1st Couteau Venturer Company in Kamloops, BC with his project: “How efficient and environmentally friendly is my campfire?” In this project, James examines the efficiency of heating by burning wood, charcoal, and other combustible materials. He has devised a method to calculate and compare the amount of heat produced by fires of different sources and figure out which fuel produces the most efficient fire.

    Second award ($1000 towards the trip to 2015 World Jamboree in Japan)
    Abby Maddock from 7th Kanata Venture Company in Ontario for her project “Device for Generating Electricity and Purifying Water from a Renewable Energy Source”. Abby has designed a device that allows campers to use the heat from a fire that is boiling water to produce small amounts of electricity. The electricity is transferred through a USB port and can be used to charge a cellphone.

    Third award ($500 towards the trip to 2015 World Jamboree in Japan)
    Kieren O’Neil from 1st Couteau Troop in Kamloops, BC for his project “Deciphering Recycling”. Kieren developed a smartphone app to help users understand which plastics can be recycled and what the plastic resin code on the different products mean. His vision is that this app will help people learn more about recycling and will encourage them to recycle more so that less plastic ends up in landfills or harms the environment.
