Scout Merit Badge Workshops Return to Staerkel Planetarium

Scout Merit Badge Workshops at Staerkel Planetarium

Girl and Boy Scouts can earn merit badges at two interactive workshops at the William M. Staerkel Planetarium.

Girl Scout Space Science Adventurer Badge workshop:

  • Thursday, May 19, 7–8:30 p.m.

  • $4 per Scout

Boy Scout Astronomy Merit Badge workshop:

  • Wednesday, May 25, 7–9:30 p.m.

  • $5 per Scout


Please note that these sessions are workshops, not just a show, so scouts must be ready to work! Scouts must bring a pencil or pen and a flashlight covered with red plastic/cellophane. Scouts will receive a booklet based on requirements. The workshop will cover the badge requirements, and scouts will submit the completed work booklet to their scout office to receive the badge.

Advanced registration is required. The registration deadline is a week prior to the chosen workshop (May 12 for Girl Scouts, May 18 for Boy Scouts). There will be no registration taken at the door. There must be a minimum number of registrations to conduct the workshop; in the case of cancellation, refunds will be issued. 

To register, click here. Complete one form per Scout and leader. For more information, call 217/351-2567 or visit
