HERE'S HOW IT WORKS

Signing up for a Class: Boy Scouts and Venturers will have the option to choose a specific discipline for the day from some of the coolest technologies available anywhere - including Drone Building, Geospatial Imagery Analysis, Drone Piloting - and more ! (SEE BELOW)

If a Scout signs up for a discipline, that will be an all-day class for them with in depth hands-on training and mentoring by Subject Matter Experts.

Signing up as a General Attendee: All Scouts (Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers) along with siblings can sign up under "general attendee." This will give you the opportunity to come and go through all of our other activities and displays at your leisure and observe the selected disciplines.
