Think differently

Unlock your creative side with ideas, experiments and problem solving. Stage 6 is recommended for 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.

Sound it out - What’s that noise? Could you make it louder or get rid of it? Find out as you become acoustic engineers and compete against others in your unit. 

Psychological science - Delve into the mysterious depths of the human mind as you explore psychology – the science behind our thoughts. See what you can uncover about how we think and behave by running your own experiment. 

Think outside the box - Coming up with weird and wonderful ideas is fun, but how do you develop them to get the most creative result? Sometimes ideas can change over time, and the best ones are unexpected… 

It fits like a glove - Are you up to the challenge of designing a product that works perfectly for its user? Get ergonomic and come up with something great.

Escape room - Can you create the ultimate escape room? Think carefully and plan as a team to make sure your escape room is no easy feat! Take a look at this activity for a sneak peek at our innovate skills builder.
