Calling all Scouts!


The Columbia Memorial Space Center is the place for Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Cub Scouts to earn their next patch, merit badge, belt loop, or pin! We offer exciting and interactive workshops in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) related topics that will ignite your scout’s imagination and creative thinking.

Your scout will participate in several hands-on, exploratory activities while completing requirements to earn their patch, badge or belt loop.
