The British Army

Our partnership with The British Army engages young people about Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) activities.

The British Army are sponsoring the Scout Mechanic Badge and hope to give Scouts an insight into the world of mechanics and technology.

Sharing their skills and knowledge, The British Army will encourage Scouts to take part and develop skills for life.

As well as sponsoring our Scout Mechanic Activity Badge, The British Army will provide you with:

  • A range of resources to support the badge
  • Invitations to Army related events
  • Group rates and special workshops delivered by The REME Museum


Badge and resources

As our sponsor for the Scout Mechanic Activity Badge, everyone between 10 ½ - 14 years old can now develop skills for life in the exciting STEM.
