Earn your Scout Badge at MT Science Center
Mon-Sat | 9:30am – 5pm
Scouts visiting the Science Center individually or with a troop can complete these requirements to earn a patch, available for $3.50 at Visitor Services. Some activities require advanced notice.
What to bring: Scouts interested in completing the patch should bring a journal or extra paper and a pencil. Other helpful items to have on hand are colored pencils and cameras if children want to photo-document their discoveries.
Activity Choices: To earn your patch, complete at least 3 activities of your choice from the Discover & Record section, one worksheet from the Citizen Science section and do one service project. **The record sheet for the Discover & Record Section, as well as the worksheet for the Citizen Science Section can be obtained at the Front Desk.
Parents/Leader: Please look over the list of activities. Choose activities that are appropriate to the age and abilities of the child(ren) and/or scouts. Also, please come prepared to answer the questions of your child/troop.
Note: These activities require reading and reflecting upon the questions read. If you are accompanying young children who are still acquiring the skills used to read, please be prepared to read the questions to the child(ren)/troop. Children are welcome to write their answers, or draw their answers, as well, depending on their skill level. Note: We recommend a 1:8 ratio of adults to children when coming in with larger groups, or troops. Have fun
