Robotics Merit Badge

Slowly, the Boy Scouts have developed into a real training ground for budding scientists and engineers. Of the 126 current merit badges offered by the Boy Scouts of America, 31 of them fit under the STEM umbrella. But it’s the newest badge that is generating a lot of interest. This week, the BSA introduced the robotics merit badge, an ambitious set of requirements that really explores robotics as both a hobby and a career.

Merit Badge Clinic, Saturday, November 7

Merit Badge Clinic is coming up on Saturday, November 7. The clinic is at Palm Desert LDS Church, 72960 Parkview Drive, Palm Desert. Please be at the clinic at 8:30 a.m. for registration.

Please also COME PREPARED: You will need pen, paper, and the merit badge worksheets for the class(es) you are taking. It is YOUR responsibility to print out the worksheets, review the requirements, and take care of any prerequisites–there is a link on the right side of this page to the worksheets.

Please come in full Class A Uniform, bring a water bottle, and a sack lunch if you are taking a full day class.

Please remember that a Scout is Courteous. The clinic is being held where people worship. Please remember to treat the property with the utmost respect. Only water will be allowed in the building; no food or other drink. You will be able to eat your lunch outside under the trees in the grass. Please keep the area clean and pick up after yourself.


Many thanks to Dr. Fragen for the style tips in the last post. I am planning to study them and will be stylish next time I post!
