The Webelos Engineer Activity Badge is one of 20 different Activity Badges that can be earned in the Webelos Scout Program. The requirements are typically worked on during den meetings or den activities while the skills are practiced at home, with the help of the Webelos Scout's family. The requirements are either completed with the den or at home with the den leader's approval. Projects are brought to meetings to share with the den and for Webelos Den Leader or Activity Badge Counselor approval.
Do both of these:
- 1. Talk to an engineer, surveyor, or architect in your area about the different occupations in engineering. Create a list that tells what they do.
- 2. Draw a floor plan of your house. Include doors, windows, and stairways.
And do four of these:
- 3. Visit a construction job. Look at a set of plans used to build the facility or product. Tell your Webelos den leader about these. (Get permission before you visit.)
- 4. Visit a civil engineer or surveyor to learn how to measure the length of a property line. Explain how property lines are determined.
- 5. Tell about how electricity is generated and then gets to your home.
- 6. Construct a simple working electrical circuit using a flashlight battery, a switch, and a light.
- 7. Make drawings of three kinds of bridges and explain their differences. Construct a model bridge of your choice.
- 8. Make a simple crane using a block and tackle and explain how the block and tackle is used in everyday life.
- 9. Build a catapult and show how it works.
- 10. While you are a Webelos Scout, and if you have not earned it for another activity badge, earn the Cub Scout Academics belt loop for Mathematics.
