IEEE Program
The IEEE program has developed hands-on electricity and electronics instructional material based on the Boy Scouts' merit badge requirements. Instructional material for computer education is being developed. Any student, boy or girl can use the program to enhance technical literacy and learn more about viable engineering and other technical career options.  The IEEE program will be sponsoring the Electricity Merit Badge and the Electronics Merit Badge booth at the 2013 National Scout Jamboree.

PostHeaderIcon 2005 Jamboree Alum Preparing for Engineering Career

When Scout Adam Gross of Ocean, New Jersey, took Electronics Merit Badge at the 2005 Jamboree, he liked it so much he’s now majoring in computer engineering at Johns Hopkins University. Gross has returned for the 2010 Jamboree as an Assistant Scoutmaster and is advising his scouts to check out IEEE’s Electronics and Electricity Merit Badge booths on the Midway.

“I’ve always been into computers,” Gross says, recalling his Jamboree IEEE experience. “We really didn’t have this kind of thing at home. This is definitely one merit badge I wanted do here at the Jamboree.

“It’s great to take Electronics here because it’s taught by professionals. It’s a better learning environment because it’s taught by IEEE,” says Gross, a member of the IEEE student chapter at Johns Hopkins.
