Take part in an international study
Looking for a programme idea? Your Explorer Unit could take part in a study of environmental attitudes and behaviour, run by Athina Georgiou Shippi, a PhD student at Edinburgh University. She will visit your Explorer Unit and get the Explorers “to join in a number of activities which are both fun and interesting as well as providing me with data. Thus, you could support this study by allowing me to carry out these activities, ideally within a normal meeting. Please note that all information collected during the activities will remain anonymous.”
Athina has already started her visiting and the project is scheduled to run between June and October.
Two documents are attached, one for leaders, and one for Explorers. For further details, please contact Athina using e-mail: S1226472@sms.ed.ac.uk .

As a member of Scouting you can become part of it.Continue Reading Volunteering at The Tattoo 2018
Meadows Explorer unit used a fun and effective way to prepare for their Explorer Belt. Assistant Explorer Scout Leader Vikki McIntyre created an excellent interactive game for use with the whole Unit. A full report was published in the recent edition of Scouting magazine. The article can be found here, and contains links to download the materials needed for the game.
