Rolls-Royce partners the Cub Scout Scientist Badge to inspire the next generations who will design the world’s future technology. Rolls-Royce is a long-term supporter of The Scout Association and has created a range of resources to help Cubs discover the science that makes the world work.

Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects are so important that Rolls-Royce has set a target to reach six million people through its STEM education programmes and activities by 2020. Rolls-Royce STEM Ambassadors work with young people to help them understand what science can offer them and the life changing careers opportunities it can open up.

About Rolls-Royce

Rolls-Royce is a leading engineering company focused on world-class power and propulsion systems. They have employees in 50 countries and customers in 150. The Rolls-Royce Group is organised into five customer-facing parts: Civil Aerospace, Defence Aerospace, Power Systems, Marine and Nuclear.

They are one of the world’s leading producers of aero engines for large civil aircraft and corporate jets and the second largest defence aero engine manufacturer. Their aero engines power a range of aircraft, from jumbo jets, military aircraft, transport planes to helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles.

Rolls-Royce is also well established in the marine sector, designing ships that have special roles, like the UK’s new polar research ship, RRS Sir David Attenborough. Their marine technology powers all kinds of vessels, from coast guard patrols, ferries, and cruise liners to HMS Queen Elizabeth, the largest ship ever built for the Royal Navy.

Rolls-Royce also makes a variety of diesel engines that can be used in a range of different ways. For example they provide the power and heat for the world’s largest indoor water park. The technology from the business can be used to power trains, luxury yachts and even greenhouses.

The other business they have is responsible for nuclear power and submarines. Here Rolls-Royce is working on some of the most futurist power generation solutions. They are currently looking at a Small Modular Reactor (SMR) programme which represents a once in a lifetime opportunity for a UK nuclear company to design, manufacture and build the next generation reactors for our energy needs.
