UPDATE: Registration Full, Registration closed on Sept 6th at 3:30 pm
Registration is now open for the Merit Badge University (MBU) held on the WPI campus. This program for the boy scouts is run by the Alpha Phi Omega fraternity and student volunteers (thank you!). Most merit badge university programs are run in the spring, so it is especially nice to see this one is hosted in the fall. A wide variety of merit badges are being offered including many that are STEM related such as: Animation, Environmental Science, Engineering, Space Exploration, Chemistry, Electronics, Robotics, Geology, Astronomy & Oceanography.
The event will be held over two Saturdays, attendance both days are required, November 4 & December 2, 2017. The program runs from 9 am - 4:10 pm. The cost of the program - 3 merit badges and pizza is $15.
Registration open until Oct 1st or until 225 scouts have registered. Click on the link to register.

Welcome! I'm Debbi and I'm so glad you're here! As a mom of two boys I found it difficult to find resources on STEM programs for my kids. I spent hours researching which resulted in my kids having some amazing STEM opportunities. I want to share information with other families. I try to focus on free or low-cost events so that opportunities are available to children no matter their family's income level.
