Digital Maker – stage 3
In stage 3 you will demonstrate that you can use and combine a variety of digital making skills to complete projects that can be used in Scouting activities or in the wider world.

How to earn your badge:

  1. In a coding language of your choice, create a basic program to meet a need of Scouting or your section.
  2. Use a programmable device (such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi, or micro:bit) with electronic components, code, and appropriate materials to create an electronic gadget and use it in a Scouting activity.
  3. Design and create digital graphics for use as part of one of the above. The elements of the project should all fit within the project’s specific purpose.
  4. Show and present your digital making project, explaining the challenges that you encountered while creating it and how you addressed them.

In order to do this we will be using a Micro:Bit

If you are not familiar with using a Micro:Bit there is an online guide here. This gives you the chance to try out a range of tutorials. Use your electronic device to write your program and when it is complete, send it to to enable it to be loaded onto a Micro:Bit
