NASA and BSA Introduce Robotics Merit Badge

Have you heard about the Boy Scouts' new Robotics merit badge, introduced today by NASA and the BSA?
When people think of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), they envision activities like camping, knot-tying, and canoeing, but soon, they’ll need to add robot-building to that list. Scouts in 2011, through the introduction of the Robotics merit badge, now have the opportunity to design, build, and demonstrate a robot of their own creation.
Exciting stuff! Check out the full story at NASA Science here. By the way, that's one of the Mars Exploration Rovers on the badge.

And don't forget about the Space Exploration merit badge, too!
