Stem Merit Badge Classes, November 6

The Baltimore Robotics Center is pleased to announce it will be running instruction classes for the “Robotics”, “Game Design” and “Signs, Signals & Codes” merit badges on Sunday, November 8th.

This is the first time we’ve offered “Signs, Signals and Codes” merit badge instruction and we are excited to be bringing this new merit badge to area scouts. Scouts will study the nonverbal ways we communicate, including emergency signaling, Morse code, American Sign Language, braille, trail signs, sports officiating hand signals, traffic signs, secret codes and more. This badge even covers emoticons.

The classes are designed to take the whole time period, so don’t sign up a scout for more than one merit badgeplease.

Details and sign-up here…


This event is part of the Maryland STEM Festival and I expect that the sessions will sell out, so please do not delay in signing up.
