This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Rocket.

This BB requires you to start and operate a batch box mass heater for one hour. You are not required to build your own rocket mass heater but you will need access to one. The batch box rocket mass heater used for this BB must be a different one from the rocket mass heater used to complete the first Start and Operate Batch Box Rocket Mass Heater BB. Otherwise, this BB is the same as the first one.

Some threads on Batch Box Rocket Mass Heaters:
  - Batchbox RMH from Innovators Event
  - Explanation of Batchbox RMH
  - Emergency Batchbox RMH for Wofati
  - Batch Core Without Riser

To get certified for this Badge Bit you must provide:
  - 5 pictures
       o pic (or 2) showing the 1st and 2nd rocket mass heaters to clearly show that you used 2 different rocket mass heaters.
       o pic of starting materials, PROPERLY placed in the batch box before fire
       o pic of fire started
       o pic of additional wood added
       o pic of even more wood added
I'm so happy! And I wish to make this tiny ad happy too:
