Earn your robotics merit badge!
Join the Maryland Science Center for a one-day in-person Scouts BSA Robotics Workshop. 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.
