Aim of Badge To take on an engineering project – everyone can be an engineer!

This Badge has 4 options of which 4 must be completed
Option 4 has 5 sub sections of which 1 must be completed using the engineering design process

 For this part of the Engineering Badge, the Guides will put on their engineering hats and get the opportunity to think like an engineer
 Each challenge in Option 4 is a team project
 There are no set instructions other than to follow the Engineering Design Process we have set out overleaf
 Design thinking is the critical skill they will learn; the final product is less important
 The Engineering Design Process Chart and template to draw the final design as agreed by each Patrol is also reproduced in each project
 Suggested designs are include under each option

These are the potential engineering project for the Guides to undertake
Each project is listed on OGM separately
