IEEE emeritbadges STEM Project

The IEEE emeritbadges.org STEM program has developed hands-on electricity and electronics instructional material based on the Boy Scouts’ merit badge requirements.  Any student, boy or girl can use the program to enhance technical literacy and learn more about viable engineering and other technical career options.  The IEEE emeritbadges.org STEM program will be sponsoring the Electricity Merit Badge and the Electronics Merit Badge booth at the 2017 National Scout Jamboree.

Volunteers are still needed to teach the Electricity and Electronics Merit Badges at the 2017 National Scout Jamboree!  Over 40,000 youth and staff are expected at the Jamboree to be held at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in Glen Jean, WV.  The event is adjacent to the beautiful New River Gorge.  Volunteers are needed from July 15, 2017 – July 29, 2017; whether a two week stint or just a day or three.  Contact Ralph W. Russell, II – Chair of the IEEE emeritbadges STEM Project at emeritbadges@ieee.org to volunteer.
