IET Scout Light-up Map - Project 6

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 light-up map project. This is project 6, starting on page 28 of the 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 a bit easier, we have put them all on this page. Please note that some items are in different pack sizes so please be careful to order the right number of packs. You will need one of each of the following electronic parts to build one light-up map, except LEDs where you will need as many per scout as you wish to put on the map:
