We exhibit the dynamical scattering of multi-solitons in the Skyrme model for configurations with charge two, three and four. First, we construct maximally attractive configurations from a simple profile function and the product ansatz. Then using a sophisticated numerical algorithm, initially well-separated skyrmions in approximately symmetric configurations are shown to scatter through the known minimum energy configurations. These scattering events illustrate a number of similarities to BPS monopole configurations of the same charge. A simple modification of the dynamics to a dissipative regime, allows us to compute the minimal energy skyrmions for baryon numbers one to four to within a few percent.
