KENILWORTH, NJ - Boy Scout Troop 83 was awarded 2nd place in the NJ State Police Camporee at the end of May. The troop was one of 23 troops to submit a project for the STEM project challenge.

The troop’s project was titled, “Which Flashlight Battery Lasts the Longest.”

“The team built a device that automatically times how long a flashlight produces useful light powered by 3 AAA batteries,” Troop leader John Gaspar said. “They used the device to test 6 brands of AAA batteries to determine which brand lasted the longest and which brand was most economical.”
