NSL hosts Boy Scout badge workshop

Author: Janet Weikel

JINA-CEE has continued a successful initiative to help Boy Scouts earn their Nuclear Science Merit badges at ISNAP. 18 scouts attended a workshop on January 20th with their parents. Graduate student Bryce Frentz served as Merit Badge Counselor and was joined by two Notre Dame physics majors in leading the activities. All three students are Eagle Scouts. During the 6 hour workshop, scouts toured the NSL at Notre Dame, made electroscopes and cloud chambers, learned introductory material through lectures, and performed experiments to fulfill the many requirements for the badge. So far we've guided over 80 scouts in completing their badges.
