Teach Electricity and Electronics in the WV mountains

Do you want to raise the awareness and understanding of technology and its impact on society
to middle and high school students from around the world? The IEEE emeritbadges Project is a
global pre-university technology education program for boys and girls. emeritbadges has
developed a program to foster the accomplishment of its vision around the Electricity Merit
Badge and the Electronics Merit Badge programs. A group of thirty (30) volunteers is needed to
implement most of the project objectives at the 2017 National Jamboree at the Summit Bechtel
Reserve in Glen Jean, West Virginia from 15 – 29 July 2017. The Jamboree will be attended by
thousands of boys and girls from around the world.
YOU are needed to staff the Electricity and Electronics Merit Badge booth in the STEM Quest
area at the 2017 National Jamboree.
Contact Ralph W. Russell, II at emeritbadges@ieee.org to volunteer to spend two (2) weeks in
the scenic West Virginia mountains adjacent to the New River Gorge National River area to
teach boys and girls the basics of electricity and electronics.
