We are a specialist activity team within the Scouts SA Adventurous Activities section, focusing on STEM and innovation through electronic-based activities such as robotics, radio technology and project kits. One of our current projects is the Edison educational robot – a LEGO brick compatible programmable robot for teaching programming, coding and robotics.
We also support and promote the largest annual international Scouting Event – JOTA JOTI.

Our secondary function is to provide robust radio communications for Scouting and Community Events, which we achieve with a commercial UHF radio system.
We maintain a fleet of 50+ handheld and 12 mobile commercial radios which operate on 2 portable repeaters. These repeaters are usable South Australia wise and can be located in the harshest remote environment due to their robust water and dust resistant Pelican cases, 100+AH batteries and solar panels.
Our radios are Tait TP8100 and Icom IC-400PRO.
