Boy Scouts

Robotics Merit Badge

Our Boy Scout workshops include lecture/discussions and hands-on activities that help guide scouts as they complete their Merit Badge requirements. Our staff are certified Merit Badge Counselors by the Boys Scouts of America and will sign off on all completed requirements on scouts’ “blue cards” at the end of the workshop.

Robotics workshops are 3 hours in length and take place on various Saturdays. Visit the “Boy Scouts Registration” link to view upcoming classes.

Scouts are asked to complete sections 1ab, 2abc, 3, 6b, and 7 in the Robotics workbook before the start of the workshop (requirements 4 and 5 are completed during class).

$21 per scout ($14 for CMSC Members)


 
 

Girl Scouts

 
 

We currently offer workshops for Girl Scouts to earn specialized patches in Space Exploration (Brownies) and Robotics (Juniors & Cadettes) designed just for the Space Center! Workshops encourage girls to participate in fun, yet challenging activities that expose them to STEM topics and careers. Each participant receives a patch upon completion of the workshop.
