 (See additonal information in the attachments at the very bottom of this page)

Good morning everyone, 

 

I hope this finds you and your families, scouting units, and communities well during these challenging times. Following a two month closure that began on March 14th, the New England Air Museum successfully reopened its outdoor exhibits and grounds on Memorial Day weekend. We reopened our interior exhibits on June 19, 2020, and for the past two months we have provided our visitors with over 90,000 square feet of world class aircraft, exhibits, and social distanced programming. We have also been busy planning for the upcoming fall program year, and it is with this in mind that I am reaching out to you today.

 

After much careful thought, the New England Air Museum has decided to switch its Aviation Merit Badge Workshops from in-person to virtual for Fall 2020. We made this decision in consultation with our local Council and school districts, as well as out of an abundance of caution for our visitors—many of whom travel from throughout the New England region to participate in our workshops—as well as our Merit Badge Counselors, all of whom are elderly and most at risk for COVID-19 complications. As you are a member of our Scout Program Contact List, you are receiving this information ahead of the general public.

 

With this in mind, I am happy to share that our Virtual Aviation Merit Badge Workshops are now open for registration! I have attached both PDF and Word versions of a flyer detailing all the specifics regarding the new virtual workshops, but here is an overview of the program:

 

  1. Virtual Aviation Merit Badge Workshops will be held live via Zoom with two museum Merit Badge Counselors from 9:30am-12:00pm on each workshop date: September 12, October 10, November 21, and December 12, 2020. Merit Badge Testing Appointments with a Merit Badge Counselor will be held over the phone immediately following each workshop at prescheduled times. A parent/guardian must be on the phone during Testing Appointments in keeping with Scouts BSA Youth Protection policies. Parents/Guardians are not required to participate in the Zoom workshop but are encouraged to do so.
  2. Please note the Merit Badge Testing Appointments are conversational in nature. Scouts may use whatever notes they take during the workshop as reference during their test appointment conversation. The goal of these phone calls is to ensure a scout has a basic knowledge of each requirement so our Counselors can sign off on Blue Cards. Testing appointments are available on a first come, first served basis and are offered at the following times immediately following each workshop: 12:30pm, 1:00pm, 1:30pm, 2:00pm, 2:30pm.
  3. Signed Blue Cards will be mailed to families after each workshop, and these Blue Cards will list either the scout’s completion of the badge or the requirements they passed in the event of a partial. Families with scouts who received partials may have their scout retest at a later date for no additional fee over the phone or in person at the museum by appointment.
  4. Our Virtual Workshops now have prerequisites. These include building a basic FPG-9 glider out a foam or paper plate using templates/instructions that will be emailed to you in advance of the workshop, as well as downloading/printing a museum Merit Badge Workshop to use during the workshop. This document will also be emailed in advance. Your workshop Zoom link and access password will be emailed one week prior to your workshop date.
  5. Workshop fees are now a flat rate of $55 per scout. These fees include the live Zoom workshop, phone testing appointment, as well as two admission passes so scouts may visit the New England Air Museum with a parent or guardian at a later date. These will be mailed after the workshop along with the Blue Card. These passes have no expiration and no cash value.

 

Registration for Virtual Aviation Merit Badge Workshops is strictly limited to 10 scouts per workshop, and we accept registrations on a first come, first served basis. Please contact me by phone at (860) 623-3305 x313 with the following information at the ready to register:

 

  1. Scout name, age, and troop number.
  2. Parent/guardian name, address, email address, and phone number
  3. Your preferred workshop date as well as testing appointment time slot.  
  4. The best phone number to reach your scout and their parent/guardian during their testing appointment.
  5. Payment in the form of a debit or credit card.

 

We hope to return to in person workshops for Spring 2021, and with this in mind we will not be releasing our Spring 2021 dates until later this fall.

 

Many thanks for your continued support of the New England Air Museum. I look forward to hearing from you!

 

Best,

Amanda

PLEASE NOTE: This event is for currently registered members of the Boy Scouts of America (Scouts BSA or Venturers). Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. We look forward to welcoming many new Scouts BSA at the Merit Badge College in January 2020!

Scouts are expected to secure a MB pamphlet in advance of the MBC and to have read it. Scouts are to have a blue MB card filled out with his personal information and signed by his scoutmaster before going to class.

Prerequisite information is included in the course catalog that can be found on the MBC web site. It is the Scout’s responsibility to be familiar with and complete any prerequisite, project or other outside work prior to the MBC and present the work or evidence to the counselor. A note from the Scoutmaster or a signed prior partial MB Card may be useful in this. The Merit Badge Counselor has discretion to determine if the Scout has met the MB requirements.

STEM/Supernova Awards: Many of the Merit Badges offered will help qualify Scouts for one of the Nova or Supernova STEM awards. More info on STEM in Scouting here: www.scouting.org/STEM


Guidance for Scouts Attending the MBC

The Merit Badge College is an opportunity to learn from subject matter experts in career or lifelong hobby subjects. We seek out experts in areas that may be difficult for you to find such as Electronics or Archeology.

The MBC will publish a course catalog on the MBC website. This catalog will provide a list of every workshop being offered; its schedule; the list of requirements that are prerequisite for the workshop; the counselor’s name with a short biography. Additionally, we will indicate if the workshop is best suited for an older scout in high school.

If you want an idea of what the Merit Badge is about, there is much information available on-line. A fantastic resource is the US Scouting Service Project. http://usscouts.org/usscouts/meritbadges.asp .

1.) Pick a Workshop: EXPLORE.

Talk to your parents about which workshop to take. But in the end, we expect you to select a topic that you truly wish to learn about. Don’t let your only motivation be an Eagle badge, get outside your comfort zone and try something new.

2.) Consider Your Age

While there is not an age or grade requirement for any merit badge, certain classes at the MBC are recommended for scouts in the 9th grade and older. This group will include only a few badges such as Environmental Science. In the short duration of a single day, the nature and amount of material covered in these classes will make it very difficult for a younger scout to keep up. This can slow the pace of the class and the class will not complete the intended material. We want you to enjoy what you do here so you will do it well. Be sure to select something age appropriate and get your Scoutmaster’s approval on a blue Merit Badge Card.

3.) Getting Ready for MBC Day (Read the book) LEARN LEARN LEARN LEARN

OK. So, you have selected your workshops and registered on-line. congratulations! The next thing that your should do, if you have not already done so, is to get a copy of the Merit Badge pamphlet for yourself. (Read the book) Your should read through the pamphlet so that you are completely familiar with it.In fact, (read the book) you may want to read it through more than once. (Read the book)
We do not guarantee that you will complete any badge. Many MB Workshops will have published a list of pre-requisites in the course catalog. These are requirements that you should complete before MBC day. When you complete them, bring all material to class with you such as notes, pictures, writings, reports, letters. (Read the book.) It is up to you to make sure that you complete every requirement. Even if they are not listed, some requirements may by their nature not be doable in a classroom. (Read the book.) You should at least attempt to complete these before the MBC. If you can do this, then you will get the most out of the workshop. If you do not, then you won’t. (Read the book.)

4.) Blue Merit Badge Cards

Your card is your ONLY record of achievement at the MBC. Keep it safe. You must have with you a Merit Badge Card for every workshop. Before the MBC, you should fill out the card with your name, address, Merit Badge and Troop information. Your Scoutmaster should sign this card indicating that he approves you taking the class. (Read the book.) This card will be the ONLY record of your achievement at the MBC. Counselors are not required to keep records. Some will but most will not. You are responsible for your card. Keep it safe and bring any prerequisite work that you have done (or its proof) with you. Bring your Merit Badge Pamphlet. (Read the book.)

Excellence is not a act...Excellence is a habit...Be Excellent

Proper Scout behavior is expected. Each Scout is an ambassador to Rhode Island College.

Each of the two sessions during the day is 3.5 hours. The first session starts at 8:30 and will go until 12:00 noon. Counselors will schedule short breaks. Make sure that you have water and/or snacks if needed. This is a college campus and you will be walking outdoors in-between building, so be dressed for the weather. Donovan Hall will be open for you to wait for your ride until 5:00 PM.


Youth will select from the "Full Day Class list" or the "Half Day Class list".

Adults will select "Adult Options". Adults will have the choice to select a class or classes to assist with two-deep leadership and receive a fee discount. There is also an option for adults to select no classes.

Registration Changes: If you would like to make a change to your class selections after you have registered email: nicole.garlick@scouting.org

We look forward to welcoming many new Scouts BSA at the Merit Badge College in January 2020!”
