Lunch 12:00 Noon to 1:00 pm  (Bring your own lunch)

Session 2 - Saturday, October 14th, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm



The Merit Badges require only ONE SESSION each, multiple sessions are offered on a few badges.



Not all badges can be completed during the sessions (i.e. Family Life, Citizenship badges, Communications, etc.).  The class is designed to assist the Scout in accomplishing all requirements that can possibly be completed in a classroom setting.  This event will go a long way to prepare the Scout to complete the merit badge.  Some counselors have provided information on pre-work that can be done prior to the event so that youth may complete the merit badge that day if they so desire.  


 
Some badges may have a cost associated with it, due to materials that must be used by the Scout.  If a cost is necessary, it will be listed with the Merit Badge being offered.  Each Scout must bring the money with them, or the appropriate supplies on their own.


Please make sure that each boy brings a blue card for each merit badge class they are signed up for and come with your Merit Badge Worksheet. ( meritbadge.org )



Arrival Time: 8:30am for flag ceremony and instruction



Dress Code: Class A or B uniform is expected!

 

LUNCH:  Please have each scout bring their own lunch

Merit Badge Pre-Work:



CITIZENSHIP IN THE COMMUNITY PRE-WORK:  


Please contact Rich Bowman richwbowman@gmail.com for questions regarding the pre-work for this merit badge

(1) Step 3 -  Do the following:


a. Attend a meeting of your city, town, or county council or school board; OR attend a municipal, county, or state court session.

b. Choose one of the issues discussed at the meeting where a difference of opinions was expressed, and explain to your counselor why you agree with one opinion more than you do another one. (We will set aside time to discuss during the merit badge college for those who have completed this in advance. Frisco holds its regular meetings on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm. For further information go to 

http://www.friscotexas.gov/585/City-Council .)

(2) Step 5 - With the approval of your counselor and a parent, watch a movie that shows how the actions of one individual or group of individuals can have a positive effect on a community. Discuss with your counselor what you learned from the movie about what it means to be a valuable and concerned member of the community. (We will set aside time to discuss during the merit badge college for those who have completed this in advance. Examples of movies recommended on the meritbadge.org website are found here: https://meritbadge.org/wiki/index.php/Citizenship_in_the_Community#Movies_With_a_Meaning )


(3) Do the following:

a. Identify three charitable organizations outside of Scouting that interest you and bring people in your community together to work for the good of your community.

b. Pick ONE of the organizations you chose for requirement 7a. Using a variety of resources (including newspapers, fliers and other literature, the Internet, volunteers, and employees of the organization), find out more about this organization.

c. With your counselor's and your parent's approval, contact the organization you chose for requirement 7b, and find out what young people can do to help. While working on this merit badge, volunteer at least eight hours of your time for the organization. After your volunteer experience is over, discuss what you have learned with your counselor. [We will set aside time to discuss during the merit badge college for those who have completed this in advance. It can be difficult to find organizations that allow younger scouts to volunteer. I have found schools can provide good opportunities in the past (e.g. elementary school fundraisers, carnivals, etc.)]

ELECTRONICS MERIT BADGE EQUIPMENT & PRE-WORK:  

We will be building a circuit from a kit in class.  There is a $3 fee for the kit.  Please let me know (Ron Ward ronaldj.ward@yahoo.com) which of the following equipment you can bring (could be your own or borrowed):

1. soldering iron for electronics (not plumbing)

2. small wire cutters/snippers


3. volt meter or multi-function meter 


This will help me know how much of this equipment I will need to bring for the students.
