Merit Badges are used by the Boy Scouts to help scouts increase their skill in an area of personal interest. There are over 100 merit badges available. Of this group, three badges, Electricity, Electronics, and Digital Technology are squarely in the IEEE field of interest. The IEEE emeritbadges.org STEM Project is developing instructional material that can be used by global students – boys and girls, scouts, merit badge counselors, science & technology educators and the general public. The STEM program can be used to enhance technical literacy and to provide information about viable engineering and other technical career options.
