Nuclear science gives us a simple explanation of the natural world. The ultimate goal of nuclear science is to find out if there is one fundamental rule that explains how matter and forces interact. Earning the Nuclear Science merit badge is a chance for Scouts to learn about this exciting field at the cutting edge of science today.
Our Merit Badge counselor would prefer scouts who are at least 14 years of age due to the complexity of some of the materials that will be covered.
