On the 25th of June it was #Takeoverday! Young people from across the UK took control of the social media museums, to empower and make their voices heard. The 12th were in on the action thanks to the wonderful learning officer at Darlington’s our Head of Steam museum. The scouts explored the museum to find items they found interesting and then wrote tweets and posts about what they saw. We heard stories of the items, their past and how the railways built our home town. All of this went towards there Local Knowledge activity badge and Skills Challenge badge for promoting Scouts.
