CS2N Offers Free Resources to Earn Robotics Badge

CS2N, or Computer Science Student Network, has partnered with the BSA to offer free training and resources specifically for Scouts earning the Robotics merit badge. Scouts can download a 60-day copy of the Robot Virtual World Software to complete the Robotics merit badge. In addition, there is a CS2N course specifically designed for Scouts and leaders to help boys earn the badge. For access to all the training material and software, visit http://www.cs2n.org/partners/boy-scouts/.

There you’ll find a variety of tools and resources for our Scouting community, including:
  • Teacher resources for Scout leaders
  • How-to videos
  • Fun, interactive games and activities
  • Learning opportunities
CS2N resources are also designed to support the upcoming Computer Science Programming merit badge. Starting in October, you’ll be able to use the CS2N infrastructure to develop your own themed storytelling and animation or Web development activities.
CS2N also supports our merit badge counselors by offering classes on an as-needed basis using WebEx distance learning technology. If you are interested in participating in a class, please
send them a note.
