Think differently

Unlock your creative side with ideas, experiments and problem solving. Stage 5 is recommended for Guides and Rangers.

Here's a taste of the activities you can look forward to trying at this stage. Ask your leader about all the things you'll need to do to earn this badge.

Crime scene scientists - Fancy a go at being a crime scene investigator and forensic scientist? Here’s your chance to think carefully, preserve evidence – and analyse mystery materials to identify guilty suspects.

High-tech help - Get ready for a collision of fashion and technology as you design a helpful high-tech piece of clothing. Show off a prototype and find out if it’s worth investing in.

Retro revival - When it comes to art and design, what goes around comes around. So, grab something from the past and bring it hurtling into the 21st century.

Level up - Turn your meeting space into an app and program a real-life version of a computer game. You’ll need to become the characters and game pieces to get your group to victory!

Bridging the gap - Can you build a bridge strong enough to survive an earthquake or hurricane? And cope with hundreds of tonnes of cars too? See if your engineering skills are up to the challenge…
