Engineering Duty Officer School helps Scouts with project ‎

Over the course of three days in July, Boy Scout Troop 787 from Thousand Oaks sent nine Scouts to the Engineering Duty Officer (EDO) School at Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC) Port Hueneme to work on their Engineering Merit Badge.


Classroom lectures, discussions and building of an engineering project were all part of the program that was put together for the Scouts.

The Scouts had to research a household item such as a TV, toaster or computer to determine how it works and what sort of engineering activities were needed to create it.

They also needed to pick an engineering achievement that has had a major impact on society and investigate the engineering feats that made it possible, obstacles that had to be overcome, what engineers were involved in the project and how it has influenced the world.

Among the topics they chose were the Great Pyramids, the Great Wall of China, the Eiffel Tower, the Panama Canal and the space shuttle.
