Welcome 

Welcome to this years Scouts in Action Month - Scientific Scouts in Action. Here is your opportunitiy to explore the sciences, physics, space, chemistry and earth sciences. There is plenty of scope for some amazing programs this year and your Group will be able to hook up with local organisations that will visit and demonstrate some pretty amazing stuff.

Science is all around us and it is really cool and there are lots of badges your Joyes, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers and Rovers can earn whilst having fun learning about how stuff works.

Making slime, elephants toohpaste, a mentos fountain are just a couple of the experiments you can take part in and that is just half the fun, figuring out what is actually happening and understanding the science behind it all is the other half!

This is the 9th year of Scouts in Action and we have almost reached 200,000 participants since 2010 and this year we will easily reach that target but Scouts in Action relies on you spreading the word throughout your Group, District, Region etc.  Spread the word about this years theme and get everyone being part of Scouts in Action Month 2018.

Keep visiting the SiAM web site for updates, programs and other resources that will be rolled out as we hurtle towards August.
