Meteorology is the study of Earth's atmosphere, its weather and the ways in which the elements work in the environment. In addition to learning how everyday weather is predicted, scouts will also learn about extreme climate conditions such as thunderstorms, tornadoes, hurricanes, and how to stay safe.
Electricity is a powerful and fascinating force of nature. As early as 600 B.C., observers of the physical world suspected that electricity existed but did not have a name for it. In fact, real progress in unraveling the mystery of electricity has come only within the last 250 years. In this program, scouts will learn how to properly respond to electrical emergencies such as how to treat electrical burns and what to do in the case of an electrical fire.
Electronics is the science that controls the behavior of electrons so that some type of useful function is performed. Scouts will learn more about this fast-changing and exciting field as well as how to use safety precautions when using, building, altering, or repairing electronic devices.
