Boy Scouts Earn Programming Merit Badges at PCC

03 March 2021

11 Boy Scouts earned their Programming Merit Badges through the Information Networking Technology department at Pratt Community College over the weekend.

To meet the requirements for the Programming Merit Badge on behalf of the Boy Scouts of America, the scouts were required to code in three languages. They coded in Arduino, Python and Visual Basic. They also studied the history of programming, career options and education pathways.

The Scouts from BSA Troop 201 spent a little over four hours earning their merit badges at PCC. BSA Troop 201 includes members from Pratt, St. John and Great Bend, KS.
