Scientist makes for a fun Den Meeting!
  Prev  -  Next 


This is the Scientist activity badge for Webelos Scouts.
Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts can also earn the Cub Scout Astronomy, Cub Scout Science, and Cub Scout Weather belt loops and pins.
The Webelos Scientist activity badge helps prepare Webelos Scouts for the Boy Scout Astronomy, Chemistry, Engineering, Space Exploration, and Weather. merit badge(s).
The Webelos Scientist activity badge options include earning the Astronomy, Science, and Weather belt loops.


Webelos
Scientist
Activity Badge

The Webelos Scientist 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. The requirements are either completed with the den or at home with the den leader's approval. Projects are brought to meetings to share with the den and for Webelos Den Leader or Activity Badge Counselor approval.

The Scientist Activity Badge will teach some of the basic laws of science and how to demonstrate them.

Many Webelos Scouts may earn belt loops and pins a second time to qualify for Webelos Activity Badges. All boys may earn belt loops more than once; however, leaders should encourage boys to try different requirements and earn the pin. Packs should have a clear policy in place to determine whether the pack or the boy's family will be responsible for the cost of awards that are earned more than once.
