Virtual Geology Merit Badge

Event Details

Baden-Powell Council presents:

Geology Merit Badge

the second of three Merit Badges in its STEM Series in partnership with Museum of the Earth!!


When: Tuesday, November 30, 2021 6:00-8:00 pm Eastern Standard Time

Cost: $37

Scouts will be able to complete over 80% of this badge with Geology Experts from the Museum of the Earth!!

The Geology Program will be an interactive two-hour virtual program from the Museum of the Earth focusing on New York State geology. During the program, scouts will be able to explore geology from its historic roots and learn how to “read” their surroundings.  It will consist of a Museum educator leading a general presentation, showing 3D scans, exploring a Geologic map, and assisting scouts to discover how a geologist can make a living. There will also be a chance for scouts to participate in small groups during breakout rooms and present their discovery for the entire group. There will be challenges to move by finding items in their house or immediate area that are made of minerals or rocks. This program though virtual will bring the imagery of the Museum and help scouts to discover the geology of their immediate area.

We are asking parents and Scout Leaders to help us by agreeing to lead small breakout room Groups for discussion as part of this program.  If willing to help, please email
