Cub Scouts of Pack 834, sponsored by Thunderhill Elementary School, had a "scientific experience" at a recent overnight stay at the Maryland Science Center in Baltimore.

Under the guidance of Den Leader Wayne Brychem and Den Chief Daryl Lang, the boys participated in workshops on gravity, buoyancy and the rain forest, earning them a science patch.

Parents Jean Leslie, Chris Ohanian, Pauline and Chuck Wieroth and Frank Scrivener enjoyed the trip as much as Welebos' Matt Bryden, Tim Horan, Sam Leslie, Michael Meehan, Alexis Ohanian, Philip Pinder, Adam Solomon, Alex Von Hagen-Jamar, Paul Burt, Eric Wieroth, Michael Scrivener, Ben Yharmacher and Jonathon Hall.
