How will the BSA Electronics Merit Badge benefit you, the Boy Scout?
Electronic devices are becoming more and more a part all our lives. They are integral in autos, computers, audio devices, robots, tools, small and large appliances and more new devices all the time. Understanding the basic concepts of how the components, circuits and devices work. It opens a world of opportunities to the holder of that knowledge. The ability to evaluate the problems in an electronic device gives you the means to save lots of money, through repairing your own equipment or the equipment of others.
Over my many years of learning, working, and tinkering with electronics I have been able to reclaim, repair, and maintain all kinds of electronics devices and appliances.
