BOY SCOUTS: LEADING THE WAY

BOY SCOUTS WORKING ON NUCLEAR SCIENCE MERIT BADGE

By David Madden

More than six dozen boy scouts spent Saturday in the shadow of a nuclear power plant in order to earn a special merit badge. How times have changed. The scouts now offer a Nuclear ScienceMerit Badge, and nine scout troops from New Jersey and Delaware are the first large group to take a three and a half hour workshop offered near the Salem Nuclear plant. “We look at it as an opportunity to provide an education for them and also, hopefully, for us in the future ; introduce them to the nuclear field and one day they may want to come back here and work as employees,” said Joe Delmar is a PSE&G Nuclear spokesman. Included in the workshop is a look inside a simulated control room and a chance to dress like a plant worker, protective clothing included, and try out radiation survey meters. In the past, such tours were limited to a handful of scouts at a time. Now, they’ve become so popular Delmar says a few of these workshops will be held every year. LINK

This story ties in to the above. SIX DOZEN Boy Scouts spent the day learning about nuclear science… on a saturday. That’s six dozen boys who had a life inspiring day and weren’t running the streets getting into trouble. This is what scouting is all about. No matter what your kids are into, sports, school, scouting or the chess club, it’s up to us to stay involved in their lives to ensure the grow and thrive.

    This is great. I loved the Boy Scouts when I was a scout. You can bet though with the loony left’s total disdain for nuclear energy they will add this to their list of reasons to hate The Boy Scouts of America. The left have made inroads into The Girl Scouts through radical feminist causes, but have thus far been unable to get started swaying The Boy Scouts to the left. Hopefully they will continue to do things the way they have historically & not allow the organization to be infiltrated by the moonbats on the left.

    Maybe one day I’ll tell him how I used to be in Nuclear Medicine so that he understands it:)
