Cub Scout Pack 798 Meeting, Placentia

R2-D2 appeared at a Star Wars themed Pack meeting for Cub Scout Pack 798 at Golden Elementary School in Placentia. The boys & their families enjoyed hearing about how R2-D2 was built & the types of activities he goes to. We took off R2's head & back panel so they could look inside at his wires and inner workings, as well as see all the celebrity autographs on the back panel. Michael encouraged the young boys to be curious about how things work and learn to repair things that break, such as their toys. That type of curiousity & ingenuity leads to developing the engineering skills necessary to build cool things like R2-D2. It's rewarding to be able to potentially inspire young minds.
