Merit Badge Workshop: Astronomy

Collaborate with other Boy Scouts and Museum naturalists to earn your Astronomy Merit Badge.

Be Prepared

Scouts, before your workshop, print and read the Astronomy Merit Badge requirements. Check with your instructor for blue card and prerequisite requirements.

Essential Info:

  • Capacity is limited and Scouts must register in advance to participate.
  • Scouts may pack their own lunches and eat them on the back deck at Discovery Place Nature. Eating or drinking during the class sessions will not be allowed. Bring a reusable water bottle and a small daypack. Part of each day will be outside.
  • Museum admission for chaperones or siblings is not included.
  • Discovery Place Nature is not able to offer a refund if a Scout is not able to attend. However, if a Scout is not able to attend, he may notify the Museum of his situation and either recruit a Scout to take his place or ask the Museum to apply his paid fee toward registration for a future merit badge program.
