Full Bottle Problem Solving Challenge

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Work as a team to fill a leaky bottle from a bucket 20m away


A 2l bottle for each team with at least 1 hole in it (add more holes for more challenge) and 'full' line marked
Bucket of water for each team
Cup for each YP


YP have to work as a team to move water from the bucket to the bottle 20m away and fill it up to the line, they need to realise that one of them needs to stay at the bottle and plug the holes to allow the others to fill it.

For older scouts you could increase the challenge with more holes etc.
