Electronics Merit Badge Kit Available


The IEEE emeritbadges.org Program developed an electronics kit to be used in conjunction with the Boy Scout Electronics Merit Badge. The kit contains a PIC microcontroller that is preprogrammed with 4 modes of operation. Kit Parts consist of a 3"x 3" box, PC board, components, and battery holder. Kits can be purchased for a unit price of $15.00.

The kits were introduced and first used at the 2005 National Jamboree in Caroline County, Virginia.
