Virtual Fingerprinting Merit Badge

 

What: Scouts learn about the history and uses of fingerprinting while doing the requirements for the Fingerprinting merit badge. They learn to take a set of prints and explore identification methods and patterns.

 Meet your Counselor - Ed went through the Boy Scouts program with Troop 44 & Troop 6 out of Providence and assisted with the Exploring program with the Providence Police Department. He is a retired detective from the Providence Police Department and an FBI trained and certified fingerprint expert among may other titles and licenses.

WHO: Open to all Scouts BSA members.

HOW:  This Merit Badge will be taught in a virtual classroom. The class has a capacity of 20 Scouts. Small classroom size provides all students with the opportunity to share and interact with the counselors and other Scouts. Scouts should be prepared to be challenged and to join the conversation! Participants who do not engage with the class may not receive credit for the badge. Scouts must be prompt for all badge sessions. Late participants may not receive credit for all requirements. Scouts must use a device with video to access this class.

Before beginning work on any merit badge, scouts are to have a discussion with their unit leader regarding the specific badge and counselor.

WHEN: This class will be held virtually over two sessions:

June 11, 2020 12:00PM-2:00PM EST.

June 12, 2020 12:00PM-2:00PM EST.

Scouts must attend both sessions to complete the offered requirements.

After registering, Scouts will receive a link and login information via email the day of scheduled class. Scouts will also receive instructor details that can be used to connect to the counselor on Scoutbook. This assures that completed requirements are easily recorded. 

PREREQUISITES:   Read and download the merit badge series on fingerprints, paying attention to the requirements outlined in the merit badge series booklet.

Suggested supplies/prep-work for students: I will provide downloadable fingerprint cards with known fingerprints. No ink is required.
