Nuclear Science Merit Badge

Nuclear Science Merit Badge Workshop



Date: Saturday, March 5, 2022 | Time: 8:30 AM - 2:30 PM | Check-in: 8:00

The Nuclear Science Merit Badge is an exciting way to learn about physics. If you are a troop leader, Merit Badge counselor, or scout looking for resources to earn this badge, you’ve come to the right place! This website contains information and links to help you fulfill all the requirements. Scouts can complete the merit badge at the workshop. There is no charge. (This workshop is supported by the Creighton Physics Department, the Contemporary Physics Education Project and the US Department of Energy’s Office of Science.) Requirements 1, 2, 3a, 4a, 4b, 5a, 5c, 6a, 7 and 8 will be covered.
This year's workshop will be held on Saturday, March 5, 2022, at the Physics Department at Creighton University. Check-in for scouts will be located in front of room G59 in the Hixson-Lied building and will begin at 8:00AM. (Please be sure to register in advance. We are overbooked so unfortunately no walk-ins can be accepted this year). The workshop will begin promptly at 8:30AM. Please arrive no later than 8:00AM to insure scouts have completed registration by 8:30AM.
A Creighton University campus maps can be found here.  Parking is available in the student lot located on the north side of Burt Street, across from the Hixson-Lied Building. A no-cost lunch will be provided.
Although it is not a requirement, parents and leaders are welcome to accompany their scouts through the workshop. There will be a room with coffee and doughnuts for those adults who choose to stay and wait at Creighton while their scouts complete the workshop. The phone number for this room is 402-280-2846. Parents and leaders are not required to stay and wait for their scouts as we will have a full staff on duty.
The worksheets for the merit badge are available for downloading here.  Scouts are encouraged to complete as much of the worksheets as they are able before Saturday and to bring them along.
Additional information on the merit badge can be found at the links below.

Each year Creighton University puts on a day-long Nuclear Science Merit Badge workshop for area scouts. If you are interested in participating the workshop, please contact Jolene Buckingham for the availability of the space.
