Programme Spark

Your Section will need to go out of this world to complete this Spark! Just like the 11 out of 12 men that walked on the moon, who were Scouts. World Space Week is 4 - 10 October every year and in October 2017, we announced Major Tim Peake as one of our Scout Ambassadors.

"Scouting was the first step on a journey that led to me becoming an astronaut. With the right people, the right attitude and the right skills, anything is possible." - Major Tim Peake

Join in World Space Week with your Section. You could use the opportunity to work on a Space themed activity badge or try out some the activity ideas from the websites below.
