The Webelos Engineer Activity Badge is one of 20 different Activity Badges that can be earned in the Webelos Scout Program. The requirements are typically worked on during den meetings or den activities while the skills are practiced at home, with the help of the Webelos Scout's family.

Projects are brought to meetings to share with the den and for Webelos Den Leader or Activity Badge Counselor approval.
