The brand new 21st Century Scout Merit Badge Series will continue with the addition of the Robotics Merit Badge on January 7, 2017 at the Old North State Council office! Scouts will spend the day learning all about programming and building robots using the Lego Mindstorm system and will also learn about robotics competitions and careers.
This class is for any Boy Scout, even those without robotics experience. The material could be somewhat challenging academically but any Boy Scout is eligible to participate as long as he is prepared to listen carefully and follow directions.
Registration will open this Friday, December 9 at 8:00 PM for all Old North State Council Scouts. Scouts from other councils will be able to register starting Wednesday, December 14th at 8:00 PM. The Early Bird fee of $20 per Scout will apply until 11:59 PM on Friday, December 16th. After that time, the fee will increase to $25 per Scout. Registrations will continue until the final deadline of Wednesday, January 4th or until the class is full, whichever happens first.
