IET Scout Guy Rope Guides - Project 9

The IET has produced some resources for the Scout electronics badge. These are split into an activity pack containing sheets for Scouts and a leader pack with some additional guidance for leaders. Both packs are available for free download from the Scout website. One of the projects covered in this pack is the guy rope guides project. This is project 9, starting on page 34 of the Scout Leaders' pack. If you would like to find out more about these resources and activities, click here. 

To make ordering the items easier, we have put them all on this page. Please note some items are in different pack sizes so please be careful to order the right number of packs. You will need one of each the following electronic parts to build one guy rope guides, with the exception of the 1k resistor, which you need two of, and the strip board which can be cut and used for four projects. You can adjust the quantities before adding to the cart.
