Earn your robotics merit badge!
SOLD OUT. We will be adding a date in March so please email email@example.com if you would like to be notified when the date is posted.
Join the Maryland Science Center for a one-day virtual robotics workshop for Scouts BSA. Scouts (in 6th-12th grade) will learn about robots and programming, then design, build, and test a hydraulic arm. After the workshop, scouts will be given the contact information for a Robotics merit badge counselor who is familiar with our program and can sign off on the badge. Each scout will be provided a set of required materials.
Scouts should come prepared to discuss the safety precautions and potential first aid that may be needed when working with robots (Req. 1)
Research one career opportunity in robotics (Req. 7).
12:45am-1:00pm – Participants can log onto the Zoom platform
1:00pm-2:30pm – Learn about robots and the robotics industry
3:00pm-5:00pm – Design, Build, Test and Program a hydraulic arm
Cost: $45 per participant
- We are happy to combine shipping or packaging if multiple scouts from the same troop are signing up. In that case one representative from the troop would purchase shipping, or pick-up materials from Maryland Science Center, and then distribute the kits to all registered scouts in their troop.
