Warning!!! You have until Mar 1 2020 to get yourself registered with BSA and complete YPT training.

Our progress with BSA is going well. We are hoping to be in beta testing by mid-February. Once this is activated, here is what to expect:

Adults must enter their BSA Number, DOB, First and Last name. We will poll BSA and get back an answer. At this point one of three things can happen:
1) Your registration is verified - you can continue using Meritbadge.info normally
2) You are not registered or your registration has lapsed - your prior rights are revoked and you get the same screens that you see before your login
3) You are registered but your YPT has expired - your prior rights are revoked and you get the same screens that you see before your login

You have about a month to get yourself registered and complete YPT training. After that, your access will be revoked.

We are making some changes.   Starting March 01,  2020, every user must have a valid BSA ID to manage events, register scouts, and update counselor pages.   BSA does background checks on all registered adults and we will follow their lead before granting access.   

Why are we doing this?
1. To provide higher security and validation of all adult users.
2. To clean up the mess we've accumulated via 15 years of poor user data entry.  

How will we do this? 
When you update your profile, you will be required to provide: Last name, first name, BSA ID, and your Date of Birth.   The website will submit this to BSA to validate your account.  BSA will return your Council, District, Unit, and the date you completed Youth Protection training.  We will periodically validate this access level with BSA and update your registration status based on the data returned.

What should you do? 
Login to https://my.scouting.org/ and copy your BSA ID Number then update your profile on Meritbadge.info.  Let others in your unit know they should do the same.  We are giving you 2.5 months advanced notice to make this work.

NOTE:

AT LEAST ONE PARENT MUST ACCOMPANY HIS OR HER SCOUT AT ALL TIMES THROUGHOUT THE EVENT. This is in complaince with Georgia Tech's new Youth Programs Policy which came into effect May 2017. The link to this policy can be found here
youthprograms.gatech.edu.



Sudents of the Chemistry and Biochemistry department at Georgia Tech are hosting a free Chemistry Merit Badge Clinic on Saturday, March 28, 2020*. All scouts are allowed, and there is NO restriction on council or district. There are NO prerequisites for scouts. There are only 60 slots available per clinic. Scouts need to bring one signed waiver form (mandated by Georgia Tech), which can be found in the link below. They must be printed out and brought with you.



Please contact Paxton Threatt (pthreatt3@gatech.edu) or Suraj Rajendran (surajraj99@gatech.edu) if you have any questions. 



*We will be requiring all Scouts to deposit $15 which will be returned upon arrival* 



This new policy is to ensure that scouts who have signed up for the event attend the event. In the past, many Scouts who have signed up did not show, making it unfair for others who wished to attend. We will be making exceptions to Scouts facing with extreme circumanstances and emergencies as long as proper documentation is provided. 


Description

Our Merit Badge Clinic consists of a series of interactive lectures with demonstrations to teach the fundamentals of chemistry. These lectures will include topics such as chemical reactions, environmental science, and a tour of a functioning chemical lab right on campus. 



Registration for the event starts at 10:30 A.M at the Molecular Science and Engineering Building at Georgia Tech. Our sessions will begin at 11 A.M., and the clinic will last until around 3 P.M. Please see below for driving and parking instructions. 



There will be a short break for snacks provided only for the Scouts. Scouts should pack a lunch before coming to the event!
