Badge Weekend 17

The weekend at Cranham saw  28 Scouts and Explorers taking part in one badge:
Electronics We had fourteen Scouts covering the full age range.  Some had some experience of Electronics and some were complete novices.  By the end of the weekend they had all learnt a lot about the theory and practice of this exciting hobby, which some of us turn into a career!  They all built beat the buzzer games, automatic nightlights and flashing guy rope indicators from basic components.  After a small amount of fault finding they all worked.  We had no accidents with soldering irons this year so well done everybody.
