How to earn your badge
Complete every task to achieve Stage 4, showing that you have thought about the potential risks and how to stay safe for each activity.
- Create a portfolio of digital media. It might include artwork or a
photograph that you alter using creative tools, music, animation, CAD (Computer Aided Design) or 3D sculpture.
- Create a film, video, stop-motion animation or podcast and share it using a suitable media sharing tool.
- Create a social network profile for your section, a band, local interest group or something similar. Alternatively you could make a small
website that can host content, like the film you made in step 2, photos, poetry or information about your local area.
- Use the internet for research:
- Choose a local, national, community or Scouting issue, or something from the news or current affairs.
- Collect information from different sources, such as spreadsheets, databases, online news services and ‘open access’ data sources.
- Put your information together in a structured way, for example grouping similar information. Make sure you know where each
piece of information comes from.
- Select the information you think is most appropriate and reliable.
- Create a multi-page website with your information and make it public. Present your information in a variety of ways – you could
use infographics, images or graphs.
- Share your website with a wide audience.
- Explain your sources of information and why you picked out what you did.
- Get some feedback on what you have done and make changes to
improve your website based on that feedback.
Every individual who undertakes an activity badge should face a similar degree of challenge and as a result some requirements may need to be adapted. It is completely acceptable to change some of the requirements of the badges to allow individuals to access the badge (for example where there are special needs, cultural issues, or religious considerations to take into account) and the requirements outlined for activity badges do allow for some flexibility in order to obtain the badge. If you would like help or advice when considering adapting the requirements of a badge please contact UK Headquarters.
