STEM Ambassadors inspiring Scouts and Guides

STEM Ambassadors from British Steel, RAF Digby, RAF Waddington, RAF Coningsby, Raytheon, BAE Systems, Business Remedies and Anglian Water helped to inspire scouts and guides at the Poacher International Jamboree held at the Lincolnshire Showground. Poacher 2017 was Lincolnshire’s 10th International Jamboree welcoming 5000 Scouts and Guides from across the UK and the world for a jam packed week of activities, fun and friendships.

22 Ambassadors helped to run STEM activities for the young people during the week as part of the Global Development Village. Challenges covered areas such as logistics, electrical circuits, shelter building, roto-copters, earthquake resistance and a water challenge. The purpose of the Village was to raise awareness of global issues that affect everyone and the STEM Ambassadors showed how science and technology can help to solve some of those problems.
