Mining in Society Merit Badge
We use the materials obtained by mining everyday. We find them in the pots and pans we use to cook breakfast, the toothpaste we put on our toothbrushes, the pencils we write with, our electronic devices, our automobiles, and all throughout our homes.
The Mining in Society merit badge encourages Boy Scouts to learn more about how materials are obtained, the different types of mining, safety and environmental concerns in the mining industry, and careers in mining.
A reader asks about how old a Scout should be to work on a merit badge. The Guide to Advancement provides some answers.
