Scout Merit Badge Workshops Return to Staerkel Planetarium

Interactive workshops Nov. 1 and 9 for Scouts BSA and Girl Scouts, respectively

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

Girl Scout Space Science (all level) Badge workshop:

  • Wednesday, Nov. 9, 7–8:30 p.m.
  • $5 per Scout (leaders are free)

Scouts BSA Astronomy Merit Badge workshop:

  • Tuesday, Nov. 1, 7–9:30 p.m.
  • $5 per Scout (leaders are free)

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 deadlines are Nov. 4 for Girl Scouts and Oct. 28 for Scouts BSA. 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 Girl Scouts and here for Scouts BSA. Complete one form per Scout and leader. For more information, call 217/351-2567 or visit
