Human Bomb Squad Activity
This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts, Webelos scouts.
Two pieces of weak thread or string licorice per team.
Two-man seat carries could be used to transport the bomb.
Goal: Transport your bomb to a safe place and defuse it.
Two players stand close together, facing each other - they are the bomb. Give one player a piece of licorice in each hand. Once the other player grabs the other ends of the licorice, the bomb is set. If either piece of licorice breaks or is dropped, the bomb explodes.
The rest of the team is the bomb squad called in to carefully remove the bomb and then defuse it by cutting both wires at exactly the same time. They must carry the bomb off the floor to the destination, about 20-30 feet away.
Optional: Have a timed detonator that will go off in a set amount of time if the bomb is not defused by then.
