Never afraid of a challenge, First Gisburn Brownies chose to take on one of guidings most iconic projects, the interest badge.

Twenty eight members of the group successfully completed the Science Investigator Badge which involved completing a series of challenges, from making balloon rockets and compasses to growing their own germs from under their fingernails and in their mouths.

They loved making balloon powered cars, using only cardboard, straws blu tack and sellotape, with the help of Rolls Royce apprentices Mathew Gonzalez-Green and Jack Jones.

Tawny Owl Harriet Smith said the experience fired the girls’ interest in science and many of them were thrilled to learn they had flown in an aeroplance with a Rolls-Royce engine in it.
