Robotics Merit Badge resources
Hello Merit Badge Counselors.
Below you will find a list of resources that can be used to help a scout earn their robot merit badge. We are planning on offering a Robot Merit Badge Counselor training course the second week of August. The course will be offered online and sessions will be recorded. Please help us to identify the types of questions that you have by submitting questions at this forum. I will be monitoring this forum regularly and will use your questions to determine what information will be covered in the Robotics Merit Badge Counselors course.
• Make Robotics Academy developed robotics training materials available to Scouts taking the Robotics Merit Badge http://www.cs2n.org/partners/1
• Make the Robot Virtual World available to Scouts that do not have access to actual robots. Based on my understanding of the amount of discretion that a merit badge counselor has the Robot Virtual World may serve as a great new tool that enables Scouts to meet many of the robot requirements of the merit badge.
