Kitchen Chemistry

We've all seen a pot of water boiling on the stove. We've seen the water vapor (which many of us mistakenly call steam) rising above the pan. If we allow the process to continue, we see that eventually there's no more water left. The H20, in its gaseous state, becomes a part of the atmosphere. In a closed experiment, that water vapor would be trapped in tubes and recaptured. We don't have that sort of equipment in the ordinary kitchen where our experiments took place this month.

We are gathered together here because of one common bond, the boys of our pack. They have graduated on to new, challenging programs as of today. Our challenge, as parents and family members, is to capture their enthusiasm and energy, to direct it in a positive manner. They need our input, providing them with the proper direction, just like the chemical lab captures and redirects the water vapor in an experiment. That's a big part of what the Scouting program is all about.
