The STEM & Scouting fun starts inside the Microsoft retail store at the St. Louis Galleria!

Join Microsoft for exclusive Scout fun at Microsoft's new retail store and community theater on the second floor of the St. Louis Galleria in Brentwood, Mo. All badge workshops are FREE and provide a great opportunity for Scouts of all ages to learn and explore the latest technology. Many of these workshops will assist Scouts with earning the STEM NOVA Awards.

Contact Trina Claggett, community development specialist, to schedule your pack or troop visit or click on the event links below to register. Each workshop is limited to 20 Scouts.

A BIG thank you to Microsoft for sponsoring these free events for our young men.

At the end of the Belt Loop session, the Scouts will get a certificate of completion and a Microsoft Store patch.  During their two hours they will also have a short period of free time so they can have hands-on experience with the newest technology that they will see in the store.  Some Scouts might even earn the academic Pin.

Boy Scout Merit Badge Workshops (just click on date) - Scouts should bring a merit badge card with them.   Sessions are on Saturday or Sunday afternoons.  Click date below.
