Science Merit Badge Midway Signups:

PacSky STEM Midway
Registration site opens Monday, October 13

Hello David,

The PacSky STEM Midway registration site will open at 12:01 am on Monday, October 13, 2014 for PacSky scouts. Out-of-council scouts registration begins on Monday, October 20.  

The midway will be held atRalston Middle School in Belmont You can review the list of classes and the 2013 prerequisites at:

The classes are:
Astronomy (AM only)
Computers (AM and PM classes)
Electronics (all day class, there is a $35 materials fee)
Energy (AM and PM classes)

The 2014 prerequisites will be available by the time of registration.

Please share this information with the scouts in your troop. The registration information will appear in the upcoming PacSky newsletter.

A couple of reminders:

1) There are no wait lists for the classes. Scouts typically don’t drop classes until 2 weeks before the midway. Wait-listed scouts don’t have enough time to complete the prerequisites.
2) If you have any difficulties with the registration site please call the BSA Foster City office at (650) 341-5633. Contacting me will only delay your success as the registration site is run by the professional staff in Foster City.
3) The midway is volunteer-driven. We’ll need volunteers for check-in and in-classroom to assist the counselors. Please help to make the midway successful by volunteering in some capacity.
Best regards,

Lanny Forrest
