It’s finally time! Registration for the 4th annual STEM Merit Badge College will open next Wednesday, October 19th at 8:00 PM!
We have a lot of classes to offer this year, including:
- Environmental Science (2 classes)
- Game Design
- Nuclear Science
- Plant Science (2 classes)
- Soil and Water Conservation
Originally, the program was going to include a class for Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts. In order to focus on providing the best program possible for Boy Scouts, there will not be a class for Webelos and Arrow of Light Scouts. Instead, a separate program just for those Scouts will be offered this spring.
When registration opens next Wednesday, the Early Bird fee of $14 will apply through November 4. Starting November 5, the regular registration fee of $18 will apply. The fee includes all program materials, lunch, and a patch.
When reviewing the classes and registering your Scouts, please remember that each Scout can only register for one class during this event. To keep the quality standard high, Scouts will focus on only one class during this event. Another factor in keeping the quality standard high is the quality of merit badge counselors that have been recruited. To see more details about the classes and the merit badge counselors, follow this link to the registration page: 2016 STEM Merit Badge College.
Remember, you can view the classes and details now but registration does not begin until Wednesday, October 19th at 8:00 PM. That allows a few days to take a look at what is being offered this year and make arrangements for the person completing registration to be available when it goes live. Also important to remember is that classes will fill up fast! Each year in the past, the most popular classes have filled up in the first day or so with all classes full before or close to the Early Bird deadline so don’t wait to register! New this year is the STEM Merit Badge College t-shirt which will be available for preorder by following the link above. The t-shirt details will be added before registration opens next Wednesday.
As always, if you have questions please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you on December 10th!
