We have done a merit badge day for several years at the nuclear station where I work.  I will get the latest presentation and forward it to you.  Do you have a separate e-mail to which I may send the information.

We have also started doing the same for the local Girl Scout council; we alternate doing the girls and the boys now.

Subject: [ RadSafe ] Boy Scouts nuclear science merit badge

I was asked to be a counselor for some boy scouts hoping to get merit badges in nuclear science.  Most of the kids are ages 13-15.  Some of the topics (basic physics, radiation safety, radiobiology etc) seem a bit advanced for kids in their early teens.  Perhaps I'm wrong though.  Does anyone have any experience they would like to share? Is there any advice on teaching nuclear science to younger students or counseling this merit badge specifically?
