Rollout of interactive digital merit badge pamphlets begins

Posted on Jun 5 2015 - 4:06pm

The Boy Scouts of America just released its first wave of interactive digital merit badge pamphlets, and they’re insanely cool.

Starting now, Boy Scouts (and troop leaders and merit badge counselors) can download digital versions of the pamphlets for Cooking, First Aid, Animation and Robotics merit badges. More are coming soon (see the list below).

These digital pamphlets are the same price as their print siblings ($4.99), but you get so much more for your money. In addition to everything in the paper versions, Scouts who use the digital versions get:

  • Videos, including “how-to” clips, career bios, virtual tours and multimedia experiences
  • Search, so you can find what you need quickly
  • Simulations, animations, photo slideshows and graphics
  • Interactive Q&A’s

How do I buy these awesome things?  See this step-by-step guide.

Which merit badges are becoming digital?
