B Block (9:00-11:00 T/Th)
Astronomy focuses on what is above us: Stars, Planets, Comets, and everything in between. Scouts will study how activities in space affect their planet, learn about the different constellations in the night’s sky and their significance, and gain a better understanding of how astronomers work in their field. Astronomy Merit Badge is a great badge for scouts that are interested in learning what is beyond our atmosphere or those that are interested in a career in Astronomy.
