Cyber Chip

Level:Cub Scouts, Webelos Scouts


The Cyber Chip is for all Scouts and helps them learn about internet safety.

All Cyber Chips will expire annually. Each Scout will need to “recharge” the chip by going back to the Netsmartz Recharge area. This space will hold new information, news, and a place for the Scout to recommit to net safety and netiquette. Then, with the unit leader, the Scout can add the new date to the Cyber Chip card or certificate.
