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

This BB requires you to start and operate a rocket mass heater for one week.


To get certified for this BB, you must heat a space with a RMH for one week and meet the following criteria:
  - use two temperature logging thermometers (one indoor, one outdoors)
  - outdoor temp was always less than 40 degrees F
  - indoor temp was kept at least 65 degrees F, averaging at least 70 degrees F or more

To get certified for this Badge Bit you must provide:
  - provide graphs of logs
     - take three data points (one at morning, noon, and evening) at about the same times each day
  - provide pics of the space being heated and the rocket mass heater
  - provide a few paragraphs about the experience
First, you drop a couch from the plane, THEN you surf it. Here, take this tiny ad with you:
