Guys Farm Pearl Anniversary Challenge
In 2017 we celebrated Guys Farm’s 30th Anniversary since the site was officially opened in 1987! Since this time, Guys Farm has continued to extend and improve the facilities and adventurous opportunities provided for all members of Girlguiding! A challenge pack and badge was created to celebrate our county’s activity centre and the vision that a group of people passionate about guiding in this area had back in the 80’s!
Clever Cogs Challenge
This engineering challenge has been developed in conjunction with Girlguiding North West England and three, young female engineers at BAE systems.
Engineering surrounds us all in our day-to-day lives – even if we don’t always realise it. Although it is a field that is often overlooked, without engineering, the iconic pyramids, Stonehenge and even the International Space Station would not exist. There are also applications of engineering on a much smaller scale – from computer chips to medicines and aircraft to bionic limbs, to name a few. The activities in this challenge are designed to show some of the exciting and useful applications of engineering.
From exploding volcanoes, to mechanical hands, these innovative and hands-on activities aim to inspire the next generation of female engineers and scientists. It also features profiles of some of the world’s most inspirational and pioneering female engineers.
The Clever Cogs challenge is suitable for all sections to take part in. You can choose to complete activities as a Six, Patrol or Unit…or another grouping of your choice!
