Architecture-Merit-Badge-roundArchitecture is amazing and we have the merit badge class to prove it. On Thursday, February 6th, 2020, we will be visited by architect Gerry Rodriguez. Mr. Rodriguez is the Director of Facilities Planning & Construction at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.

This merit badge class will help Scouts understand:

  • Building styles associated with specific periods of history
  • Impact of architecture on society
  • How to read architectural drawings
