When I was a Cub Scout we made baking soda volcanoes and got medical badges by learning to tie a tourniquet. Today’s Scouts are kickin’ it up a notch.
According to SC Online the Scouts are hooking up with the World Community Grid
World Community Grid’s mission is to create the world’s largest public computing grid to tackle projects that benefit humanity. Scouts with access to the Internet are to be encouraged to sign-up as members of the new ‘SCOUTS’ team created on World Community Grid, contributing their computers’ unused processor cycles to the global effort.
Dang. I sure wish I could have gotten an IT badge instead of hiking through the woods and sleeping on the ground.
