Meccano’s Creative Challenge resource packs have gone down a storm, with 1,600 Cub groups and 1,500 Beaver groups downloading the activity booklets. So far, 29,500 Cubs and 27,500 Beavers have used the Meccano resource since its launch in November 2011.
Nikki Mason, head of corporate partnerships at The Scout Association, said: “We are delighted by the enthusiasm for the Meccano Creative Challenge. Working together in groups and learning through doing is a key part of the Scout experience for our young people. This challenge allows our young people to develop their creative thinking skills and learn about British landmarks, while having fun with their friends.
Sue Barratt, country manager at Meccano Toys (UK) Limited, says: “Our partnership with The Scout Association is proving a fabulous success. We knew the match between our brands was spot on, but it’s always reassuring to see the results. And what great results!”
Meccano sponsors the Beaver Meccano Creative Activity Badge and Cub Meccano Creative Challenge Award.
