Stanley Black & Decker

Stanley Black & Decker are partnering with The Scouts on the Beaver Builder Activity Badge to help the next generation gain the skills needed to thrive in this changing world.

Stanley Black & Decker is committed to helping the next generation gain the skills needed to thrive in this changing world. By partnering with Scouts UK on the Stanley Black & Decker Beaver Builder Activity Badge, Stanley Black & Decker will help scouts with maker activities for introductory skills related to innovative thinking, collaboration and teamwork, and do-it-yourself activities. These STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) skills will take the Maker movement into Scouting activities and help empower the future manufacturing and engineering leaders.  


We know it is critical to encourage problem-solving and creative-thinking skills at an early age. This activity badge will develop intellectual curiosity and hands-on-experiences that will fuel Beaver Scouts’ creativity, in alignment with our goal of empowering 10 million makers and innovators to thrive by 2030 and create a more sustainable world.
