Digital Maker Staged Activity Badge

Digital Maker Staged Activity Badge

Digital Maker badge

In stage 5, you will combine your digital making skills to identify and solve a real problem in the local or global community. You will go through the process of project design from concept, to testing and implementation, and finally to sharing your new knowledge with others.

How to earn your badge:

  1. Identify a real-life local or global problem and design, build, test, and improve a solution by combining your digital making skills and selecting appropriate software tools, digital devices, components, and materials.
  2. Create and share a resource that would allow someone else to replicate your project with minimal previous knowledge.

    This resource should be digital, and it can be any format you like: a video (or a series!), an online (printable) document, an entry on a tutorials website such as Instructables, a blog post...Or meet with people who could benefit from your solution to share how you created it and explain how it can help them.


  • Showcase your tech projects with other creators in the UK and across the world! Check out the Coolest Projects webpages to take part for free from February, or join the celebratory livestream with announcement of the judges’ favourite projects in June.


    We’d love to see Scouts of all ages involved so please mention you’re a Scout when you register!
