Welding Merit Badge Workshops
Building Momentum is hosting another event for Scouts BSA to earn the Welding merit badge!
They will host 2 sessions (an AM and PM session) at their workshop in Alexandria, VA. A scout only needs to join one half-day session to earn the badge.
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. 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.
