The NCSU Merit badge College is Occoneechee Council’s largest with 512 participants.  This college, in its sixth year, focuses on science and engineering Merit badges however this is only the first time for Troop 39.   It is taught by some really outstanding instructors – professors, graduate students and undergraduates –  with a ratio of 1 to 4 instructors to participants, and there are some rarely offered Merit Badges.

My Meyer and Mr Tomkins took 11 scouts who earned a total of 14 Merit Badges (3 Animal science, 3 veterinary science, 2 engineering, 3 energy, 1 weather, 2 space exploration).  What they saw was very exciting and engaging instruction from true experts in their fields.  One scout was  treated to a tour of the National Weather Service’s Raleigh operation based on the Centennial campus on NCSU.

We wrapped up the day with a trip to the James B Hunt Jr library on Centennial campus and the scouts were able to see the robots in the library retrieving books from the shelves, take part in building stories with Lego (part of an independent literary festival taking place at the library).  We finished off a perfect day by enjoying an ice cream made from the milk from the NCSU herd!
