Be An Engineer at the Engineering EXPO
Once again, the Engineering EXPO welcomes the Boy Scouts of America who are offering a unique opportunity for Scouts in our area Troops, Districts and Councils to earn the Engineering Merit Badge. Here's how:
COME TO THE ENGINEERING EXPO AT WHITE PLAINS HIGH SCHOOL
550 North Street, White Plains, NY 10605. (in Westchester County) on Sunday, March 31, 2019. The event runs from 11:00 am to 3:30 pm.
The Lower Hudson Valley Engineering Expo is a newly formed NYS Chartered 501(c)(3) Corporation. Donations are tax deductible to the maximum extent allowed by law.
While you are there, check out EXPO’s interactive displays and exhibits, meet the Young Engineers and take part in their panel discussions, visit the Middle School Activity room and visit with the many top colleges and engineering schools that will be present.
The Lower Hudson Valley Engineering EXPO is proud to welcome the Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson. Girl Scouts has as its mission to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. GSHH serves girls in a seven-county region (Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester Counties).
BE PREPARED – Come prepared to complete the merit badge. This opportunity requires that you prepare most of your work before coming to the EXPO. We have offered this merit badge in the past and some scouts came un-prepared and only earned a “partial”. There will be Engineers and Professionals at the EXPO who can help you answer several requirements that ask you to discuss and talk with Engineers about their work
PRE-REGISTRATION - There are TWO separate registrations required for the Merit Badge.
SCOUTS MUST REGISTER on the beanengineer.org web page. Provide the following:
SCOUTS MUST ALSO REGISTER with the Merit Badge Counselor-Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. You must send him the same information as above. In return, he will send you a special registration number and a packet of information via email.
No Scout will be permitted to sit with a Counselor without the special registration number issued by the Merit Badge Counselor-Coordinator.
GET THE UPDATED MERIT BADGE PAMPHLET FROM YOUR TROOP LIBRARY OR YOUR SCOUT SHOP Most, if not all of the answers to the requirements that you need to prepare in advance, are answered in the pamphlet.
BRING A BLUE CARD SIGNED BY YOUR UNIT LEADER Counselors cannot provide Blue Cards. You MUST bring one signed by your Unit Leader.
