Upcoming events

Dec. 6, 2014
Marketplace Tactics for Entrepreneurs

This workshop will consist of ongoing collaborative games where the rules constantly change, and you and your “company” must adapt. How do you grow your business with others who have the skills you need? How do you negotiate contracts with your much-needed partners? How do you work with and against your competition to sustain your business? What kids of problems arise, and how can you creatively and effectively navigate an ever-changing landscape? It’s a more realistic form of “monopoly” where you’ll learn where you shine most, and how to best work with others.

Dec. 10, 2014
Engineer Webelos Activity Badge

Construct a working circuit, design a floor plan, and build your own catapult while working towards the Engineer Badge. Scouts will learn about simple machines and hear about the many different careers in engineering.

Dec. 12, 2014
Boy Scout Photography Merit Badge

Scouts will learn to shoot like the professionals and will leave Discovery World a confident photographer. Learn the basics of cameras and photography, take photo shoots around Discovery World, and then learn how to edit your photos in Photoshop®. Scouts are encouraged to bring their own cameras, but are not required.

Dec. 13, 2014
Electricity Boy Scout Merit Badge

Discover the secrets of electricity by making an electro-magnet and a light switch. Learn how to rescue someone touching a live wire, find out how to make a battery, and learn what to do during an electrical storm! Scouts will need to complete Requirements #2 and #8 prior to attending the workshop. Please bring proof of completion to the workshop so the Merit Badge Counselor can sign off on the Blue Card.

Dec. 17, 2014
Scientist Webelos Activity Badge

Investigate Bernoulli’s Principle, Pascal’s Law, and Newton’s first law of motion through hands-on demonstrations and experiments. After the Scouts show the effects of atmospheric, air, and water pressure they’ll be able to talk to learn about careers as a scientist.
