Recently, our badges have doubled in number (new ones include various levels of the "I build robots" badge; the "I've named a child or pet for science" badge" and the "I AM actually a freakin' rocket scientist" badge).Link (Thanks, Dave!)
As well, the Science Scouts have adopted a kicking punk rock song called "Increase the N" by local Vancouver band HEFE as our official anthem. Who knew punk could work in the words "Mass Spec" into the lyrics?
Update: JFR sez, "I thought you would enjoy these merit badges from the Autonomous, Co-Ed, Secular, Non-Heirarchical Meme-Rider Scouting Collective for All Ages."
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
