If you are a Scouting or Guiding group leader looking to provide the opportunity for your members to obtain their space badges, or you are simply looking for an exciting day out for your troop, our Space Explorers programme may be exactly what you are looking for.

Recently redesigned from the ground up with input from Scouting and Guiding group leaders, we have refocused on providing the specific requirements of each group's space objectives so that, within one morning of astronomy fun, your group will have prepared everything they need to complete their associated badge.
