The SDMRM offers a Scout STEAM patch program on select Saturdays throughout the year.  Program runs from 11:30 AM to 3:30 PM. Scouts may participate individually, accompanied by an adult, or as a troop. Two adult chaperones are required for every eight scouts.

Scout STEAM Patch Program

What makes arches and triangles so strong? Scouts will work collaboratively to learn about both the physical science and history of arch and truss bridges. Scouts will perform five experiments to investigate the inherent strength of these shapes and discover why civil engineers frequently use them in the design and construction of structures in general and bridges in particular. Finally, Scouts will build a sturdy structure made out of triangles to take away with them.


Levels: Brownie, Junior, Cadette, Cub Scout, Webelos, Arrow of Light
