Electronics Merit Badge Materials

Electronics Merit Badge Pamphlet              Electronics Instructional Material

The Electronics Merit Badge first appeared in 1963. Over 162,000 scouts earned the Electronics Merit Badge between 1963 and 2007.

Completing the requirements for the Electronics Merit Badges is a great way for boys and girls to study:

  • basics of electronics
  • safety precautions
  • engineering careers

Building a circuit to demonstrate lessons learned is one of the requirements. The IEEE emeritbadges.org team has developed instructional material to be used in conjunction with the Boy Scouts of America Electronics Merit Badge pamphlet.

The Electronics Merit Badge Booth at the 2017 National Scout Jamboree will be located at the STEM Quest Area.  The Electronics Merit Badge Booth is sponsored by the IEEE emeritbadges.org STEM Project.  We will be providing instruction that will allow Boy Scouts and Venture Scouts attending the 2017 National Scout Jamboree to work on requirements for the Electronics Merit Badge.  Boy Scouts and Venturers will complete a kit, while attending the classes, that can be taken home.  Details of the kit will be released prior to the 2017 National Scout Jamboree.

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

  • Learn about technical career options
  • View technical demonstrations
