First look: Robotics merit badge

image from

Scouts at the 2010 National Scout Jamboree are getting a hands-on sneak peek at an exciting upcoming merit badge by visiting the Robotics tent inside Merit Badge Midway.

The badge won’t be available to earn until April, but that didn’t stop a steady stream of Scouts from dropping by to get some one-on-one time with a remote-controlled robot.

Organizers say the merit badge will be popular because it will mix a Scout’s love for gadgets with principles of science and engineering.

As usual, Scouting magazine will keep you informed about upcoming merit badges as soon as we get any new information.
