About Us

About Us

We are a specialist team within Scouts SA delivering Electronics based activities to Joeys, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, Rovers and Scouters. The Team was previously called the Scout Radio Activities Group and was orientated towards running amateur radio programs including JOTA JOTI and amateur radio licencing as well as operating radio communications for Branch Events. Since becoming the Scout Electronics Team we have expanded our capabilities to include robotics, soldering projects and programming. We are also looking at new ideas to include such as drones and remote control vehicles, ‘hack-a-thon’ style creative software development projects and more.
