Belmont Scout Earns First-Ever Game Design Badge

A Belmont teen is among the first Boy Scouts in the nation to earn the brand new Game Design Merit Badge announced by the Boy Scouts of America earlier this month. 

Patrick Bronsan of Belmont's Troop 304 earned the Game Design badge at “Merit Badge University,” an event hosted by the Boy Scouts Boston Minuteman Council at Harvard University each year. 

This badge is the latest STEM-related (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) merit badge to be unveiled by the Boy Scouts and it was designed by MIT Lincoln Labs in partnership with the Boy Scouts Boston Minuteman Council. 

Scouts who work on the Game Design merit badge will look at the games they play differently and with a new level of appreciation. To earn this merit badge, a Scout is required to analyze different types of games; describe play value, content, and theme; and understand the significance of intellectual property as it relates to the game industry.

The Boston Minuteman Council hopes the  exciting new Game Design Merit Badge will inspire thousands of boys to explore a career in this industry.
