Academics Pin Program

Have fun with us while earning your Academics Pin!

We will…

  • learn how simple telescopes work and make a diagram.

  • learn five constellations and how to locate them using a star map.
  • learn the importance of the North Star and how to locate it.
  • learn about different kinds of stars and make a diagram showing their life cycle.

Completion of all workshop activities will qualify participating scouts to receive a printed Certificate of Completion. Scout leaders are responsible for obtaining official Cub Scout awards.
