Description:

Composite Materials are all around you, though you probably don’t call them that. Composites make bicycles and ski lighters, kayaks and canoes stronger, houses warmer, and helmets tougher. You can find composites just about everywhere: in airplanes and sports cars, golf clubs and guitars, boats and baseball bats, bathtubs and circuit boards, and even bridges. Generally speaking, a composite is a combination of different components or elements. Scouts working on Composite Materials Merit Badge will gain a better understanding of the different types of composites that can be made, the different uses for composite materials, and even create their own composite materials.

Prerequisites:

a. Visit a company that manufactures or repairs products made with composites. Discuss what you learn with your counselor.

b. Find three composites-related Web sites. Share and discuss what you learn with your counselor.
