Electricity Merit Badge Materials

Electricity Merit Badge Pamphlet            Instructional Materials

The Electricity Merit Badge is one of the original merit badges from 1911. Over 728,000 scouts earned the Electricity Merit Badge between 1911 and 2007. The IEEE emeritbadges.org team and the IEEE CPMT Society performed a peer review of the newly revised Electricity Merit Badge.

Completing the requirements for the Electricity Merit Badge is a great way boys and girls to study the basics of:

  • Electricity
  • Electrical history
  • How to respond to electrical emergencies
  • Energy management techniques

The IEEE emeritbadges.org team has developed instructional material to be used in conjunction with the Boy Scouts of America Electricity Merit Badge pamphlet.

The IEEE emeritbadges.org STEM Project will sponsor the Electricity Merit Badge Booth at the 2017 National Scout Jamboree.  The booth will be located at the STEM Quest Area.  Boy Scouts and Venture Scouts attending the Jamboree can work requirements for the Electricity Merit Badge.

Scouts, Staff and visitors are invited to visit our Electricity & Electronics Merit Badge Booths to:

  • Learn about technical career options
  • View technical demonstrations
