Do you think all chemists do is blow things up? Would you like to conduct some experiments yourself and take a tour of a working excipient manufacturer? Do you want to find out what an excipient is? Then attend the chemistry merit badge skill center!
Questions can be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On skill center day, please bring:
- Chemistry Merit Badge booklet, 2011 or later edition, READ from cover to cover.
- Merit Badge Application Card – signed by your Scoutmaster

Prework: Requirement 4a (cooking and eating an onion) must be completed at home, prior to the workshop. Please be prepared to discuss this with your counselor.
