Merit Badges – Day 153
By Renee Bodkin
Today was another merit badge opportunity! Both Ben and Seb spent time today taking a merit badge class for
Digital Technology. They worked this past week getting pre-requisites done and then had the opportunity to meet
with a group of Boy Scouts and Mr. Eric (a leader we know) and expand their knowledge of Digital Technology.
This is the merit badge that will be replacing the “Computers” merit badge. My boys are sponges for information and
they enjoy working with Digital Technology so this was a great fit for them!
Interestingly, their uncle said, “Programming and Digital Tech… isn’t that the opposite of the whole Boy Scouting thing?!”
And… the myth is dispelled… Boy Scouting is about exploring your interests, leadership skills, living the 12 points… and yes, the outdoors! So boys have the opportunity to explore career pathways and hobbies while earning merit badges!
Grateful for these opportunities!!
