Many Scouts will have the chance to build a trebuchet and launch at a target, be challenged by code breaking or bridge building, or be able to start fires by unconventional means.The Scouts have the potential to leave camp with up to 2 merit badges or 2 Adventures for Webelos, but more importantly, they will have had the opportunity to get their hands on multiple STEM activities and learn the hows and whys of each of them.
