Spring Course offerings:
This Course Cluster combines the study of history and contemporary society to introduce Scouts to viewing the world as a social scientist would. Scouts will complete the requirements for American Heritage, American Cultures, American Business, American Labor, and as a final project complete a reflection and analysis on how these elements contributed to mass American Society at various times through out our nations history.
Being a good citizen is a huge part of being a Scout. The safety of our communities is everyone’s responsibility. This cluster combines Public Safety, General Safety, Traffic Safety, and Fire Safety Merit Badges. Upon completion of those badges Scouts will be asked to draft policy proposals outlining a proactive ‘emergency prevention’ position and weigh choices on public policy. Scouts will come away with an understanding of the role individuals can play and choices that we can make to keep us all safe.
Oh great, another acronym! Model Design and Building, Architecture, Drafting, and Engineering Merit Badges are all packed into this STEM focused, hands-on curriculum. Scouts will learn the steps along the way to completing a design project and will even design and build some of their own. With application not just in building construction Scouts will also learn about and create practical effects like the miniatures used in fan favorite Sci-Fi films. Scouts will be introduced to use of the latest free Computer Assisted Design Software for 3D scale renderings.
Having the skills to be a multimedia journalist can open doors in today’s digital media landscape. Imagine being able to record and edit your own podcast or write, film, and edit your own short film or news report. Scouts will complete the requirements for Journalism, Photography, Moviemaking, and Music merit badges while creating and sharing story boards, digital shorts, news reports, and music reviews along the way.
