AUSTIN, Texas — Earning a badge, the high-tech route.
Charles Mead, with the Capitol Area Council, said the program is good training for the future.
"We're able to get these kids to go and learn a skill, the same as they would if they camping and learning how to use an ax safely or how to set up a tent, first aid, these skills are just as important going forward in the future," Mead said.
Scouts, like eight-year-old Crosson Dupont, said the program was fun.
"Probably the coding is part Minecraft," said Dupont, who is a 2nd grader at St. Gabriel Catholic School.
"It's pretty fun most of the time. You learn how to make different apps, get to help different people and stuff," she said.
For completing the program, the Scouts earned a badge.
