Atomic Particle Collecting Camping Game
- 1 pair work gloves
- 1 plastic jar with lid
- 1 paper plate
- 50-100 popcorn kernels
|Notes:||Depending on age of campers, you may want to pop the corn kernels to make them easier to pick up.|
|Instructions:||Your space exploration team has been searching for new fuel sources across the galaxy and has discovered a planet with a source of highly radioactive fuel. Each small piece can power a city and is worth $10M. But, they can not be touched and extended exposure to them will kill you.|
Each team lines up single file at the start line. The plate is placed about 30 feet away covered with popcorn kernels.
Each astronaut must:
- Put on protective gloves to shield from the radioactivity.
- Take the shielded fuel container (jar) out to the fuel source (plate with popcorn).
- Open the container.
- Place 5 pieces of fuel in the container.
- Close the container.
- Bring the container and gloves back to the next astronaut.
At the end of a time limit, each team determines the value of the fuel they have collected.
