2017 Boy Scout requirement changes

Posted on Apr 7 2017 - 2:01am

There were a number of requirement changes for advancement and merit badges that the BSA made in 2017.  If you have an older Scoutbook here is a link that will go over all the changes 2017 BSA Requirment Changes.  Another way to stay on top of any changes will be to use our new Advancement application, "Scoutbook" for Scouts, Leaders and Parents.  It will always contain the most current requirements as the BSA owns and maintains this application.  We have started rolling this out to Adult Leaders and are rolling it out to Parents and Scouts in the near future.  Once we send an invite to the parent(s), it will be at their discrection to send a link to their Scout to join and set up an account for them to use the online Scoutbook app.  A valid email address will be required for the Parent and the Scout to use this application.  Please contact Lisa, Linda or Brian if you have any questions regarding this.

To earn this merit badge, Scouts will be asked to demonstrate their knowledge of animation and its rich history. They will learn the principles of animation, complete hands-on design projects, have opportunities to participate in virtual or in-person tours of animation studios and businesses to see how animation is used. Scouts will learn how animation is not only used in their video games and movies, but also for practical business purposes – factory simulations, satellite tracking, medical procedures and even predicting the weather.
