Requirement 4 - requires advance approval of the counselor so it's really a post-requisite – the Scout can get the merit badge counselor's approval at AAR and e-mail a power point presentation to them later.
If a Scout really wants to complete the merit badge that day, he can e-mail his plan to the merit badge counselor in advance, get their okay, then bring the completed project with him to AAR.

Must pay $40.00 fee for Robotics kit when registering

Prior to attending the class, each Scout must:
1. Research the origin and definition of the word "robot." Who came up with it and what is its history?
2. Research the origin and definition of the word "robotics." Who came up with it and where?
3. If you could build your own robot without any worry of financial or other resource limitations, what would it look like and do? This should be a realistic idea, something that can be accomplished with current technology. Assume you have an experienced robotics team helping you.
These three items should be written and turned in when the Scout enters the classroom
