2016-10-29: Youth Expo Merit Badge Activity – Volunteers Needed

We have the Youth Expo coming up that we need volunteers for. Here are the details:

Boy Scout Merit Badge Activity – October 29

SCALACS is looking for volunteers to help out with the Boy Scout Chemistry Merit
Badge activity being held on Saturday, October 29th at the BSA Greater Los Angeles
Area Council Youth Expo. The Expo is being held at the Rose Bowl Stadium Concourse.
The activity will go from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm, including setup and take-down.

We will have 4 stations at which we will guide the Scouts in various activities.
Hands on activities will cover some basic chemical reactions and interactions as
well as building a Cartesian Diver and discussing what it means to be a Chemist with
the Scouts.

Setup will begin at 7:00 am. Our first Scouts will start the activities at 9:00 am.
Wrap-up begins at 3:00 pm. We are hoping to help at least 50 Scouts earn their
Chemistry Merit Badge! With this many Scouts we would like a minimum of 2
instructors per station. We are asking that you sign up for at least a 2 hour block
and show up at least 20 minutes early so you can be checked in and learn about the
activity you are signing up for.

Lunch is not provided but there will be snacks and beverages. There will also be
cooler that you are welcome to store your lunches in.

Parking for participants will cost $10 per vehicle in Lot F located on the
South-West side of the Rose Bowl. General public parking is available in Lot K.
Limited free parking is also available near the aquatic center. Entrance into the
stadium is anticipated to be Gate A on the south side of the park.

If you would like to help out with the activities please let Derek Marin know before Thursday
October 27th. He can be reached at Derek.Marin-at-DunnEdwards-dot-com.
