Building Momentum with SBSA: Welding & Composite Materials
Building Momentum is hosting another event for Scouts BSA to earn Welding and Composite Materials merit badges!
They will host 2 sessions (an AM welding class and a PM Composite Materials class) at their workshop in Alexandria, VA. You may sign up for only one, or both classes.
Who can attend? Scouts BSA and friends ages 11-18. Feel free to sign-up with a friend
All of the classes balance instruction with hands-on shop time so the youth can gain practical experience with Welding and Composite Materials. In order to maximize their workshop experience and project time, youth are asked to come prepared with the pre-reqs (see attachment to the right). There are also a few post-requisites delineated in that same document attached (to the right).
Morning sessions are 8am - 11:30am. Lunch break is 11:30 - 12:30pm. Afternoon sessions are 12:30 - 4pm.
