Robotics / Electronics

Electronics is the science that controls the behavior of electrons so that some type of useful function is performed. In this dual merit badge session, Scouts will explore the functions of electronics by building robots!  Participants who complete all of the week's requirements will earn both merit badges.

Earning the Robotics merit badge requires a Scout to understand how robots move (actuators), sense the environment (sensors), and understand what to do (programming). Throughout the week, participants will build robots both individually and as a team using a variety of materials. We recommend that Scouts be at least 13 years of age in order to participate. There is a $20 fee for program materials.
