STEM Model Design and Building Merit Badge
How the day works:
- Scouts and adults (donating $5 for lunch is optional) will be broken up into teams. There will be some large group presentations given on techniques and concepts.
- The Scouts will be expected to act professionally in a business environment. Scouts should be mature enough to handle discussions about fractions and dimensions. Scoutmasters will be responsible to determine on an individual basis what age is appropriate. Scouts will be required to show up with closed toe footwear. Nice shorts and a Scouting T-shirt would be appropriate attire.
- Scouts will be given a safety tour and will be required to sign a form attesting that they were shown safety equipment and how to use it.
- Scouts will build the wood frame house as a group, learning about dimensioning and start the Space Ship. They will take home the ship to complete on their own. They will then return the second weekend to discuss and show their ship.
