OVER 250 Scouts from across the United Kingdom have taken part in an RAF100 Air Researcher Badge Launch at the RAF Museum at Cosford on 15 October. Inspired by the Royal Air Force’s Centenary next year, and part of the RAF100 Youth & STEM programme, the Launch was part of the foundation to the RAF building interest in STEM-based careers among young people, helping to ensure that the UK has a highly skilled workforce of the future.Curriculum-based STEM days will be delivered across the UK by RAF personnel, who volunteer as STEM Ambassadors in their spare time. As well as sponsoring the Air Researcher Activity Badge for the Scouts, this extensive national programme also includes robotics and engineering competitions and residential courses. The Scouts attending the Launch had a small taste of STEM activities, were able to handle original artefacts and researched some of the aircraft in the Museum. Air Vice-Marshal Richard Knighton, Assistant Chief of Defence Staff (Capability and Force Design), hosted representatives from The Scout Association and specialist STEM organisations from across the UK. He said:“Today sees the launch of an exciting new partnership for the RAF and Scout Association. We have launched this badge as part of a programme of events to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) and aviation across the UK. We have worked hard to foster relationships with a number of external partners such as the Scout Association to help ensure a highly skilled workforce can meet challenges in the future This is the first of many events in the build-up to the Centenary of the Royal Air Force. We are committed to using this unique opportunity to inspire the next generation across the UK by growing their interest in Science and innovation”.Simon Carter from The Scout Association said:“Scouting provides young people, both boys and girls, with skills for life and an opportunity to taste adventure. We are hugely pleased to be teaming up with The Royal Air Force to gain access to experts who can support our delivery of STEM activities and give our young people the skills they need to succeed in life” ”BackgroundRAF100 is a major campaign to celebrate the Centenary of the Royal Air Force. The campaign will run from late 2017 to September 2018, to commemorate and celebrate our first 100 years and to inspire the Service men and women of tomorrow. The Scout Association was founded on 1st August 1907. Adventure is at the core of Scouting, and the Association passionately believes in helping their members fulfil their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potentials by working in teams, learning by doing and thinking for themselves. Over 200 activities are offered by Scouting around the UK, made possible by the efforts of more than 100,000 volunteer leaders. This has helped make Scouting the largest co-educational youth Movement in the country. Last year, The Scout Association launched the biggest revamp of its youth activity programme. The Movement launched 165 new and updated badges for its youth members (aged 6-18 years), which creates a new total of 250 badges. One of the challenges that the Scout Movement faces is finding more volunteers to plug the current gap. At present there are over 40,000 young people on waiting lists across the UK. Adults working in Scouting contribute in excess of 364 million hours of voluntary work each year to their local communities. The number of volunteers working for Scouting is bigger than the combined workforces of the BBC (20,000) and McDonalds (67,000) put together. Worldwide Scouting has 40 million members both male and female and operates in nearly every country in the world.
