Downingtown Area Robotics (DAR) is now able to serve the Boy Scouts of the Chester County Council in two ways:
  • Boy Scouts participating in either our high school FRC or middle/high school FTC program will be able to fulfill the requirements of the BSA robotics merit badge. We are very eager to work with interested scouts, and would consider expanding qualification to related badges if there is interest. (There is no fee to students pursuing a robotics merit badge, although there is a general team fee).
  • In addition, DAR is able to provide structured merit badge workshops, as two 3-hour sessions. We are open to organizing these locally to meet the needs of specific troops. DAR provides all the necessary robotics kits and resources, so a small fee will be charged to amortize costs.
