Update on Astronomy merit badge

Scouts who attended the first part of our Astronomy merit badge work at Northwestern’s Dearborn Observatory should be continuing to read their merit badge pamphlets and prepare for the next leg of our journey.

We’re fortunate to have made contact with a volunteer from the Skokie Valley Astronomers club, who will be helping us learn more about astronomy, recognize the stars and planets in our night sky, and meet merit badge requirements.

Look for more information here in the blog and at a troop meeting in the near future.

If you weren’t able to attend the program at the Dearborn Observatory, you can still start working on the badge. Let Mr. McLaughlin or Mr. Hess know if you’re interested in getting started.
