Engineering Troop Program Feature

Engineering Troop Program Feature

Engineering covers a variety of fields as broad as all outdoors – or indoors, for that matter. Virtually everything we use in the course of a normal day has an engineer’s stamp on it. In Scouting, we specialize in “wilderness engineering” – the art of building useful things with rope and timber.

For Scouts who enjoy making things, recommend that they try to earn the Engineering merit badge. It will expose them to various facets of engineering, and it may lead them to work on such other merit badges as Computers, Drafting, Electricity, and Electronics.

The big event will be a campout during which patrols can do some wilderness engineering and enjoy interpatrol competitions.
