Hi everyone -
I am the computer merit badge counselor for my son's Boy Scout troop.
Two of the requirements are:
"7a. Visit a business or an industrial plant that uses computers.
Observe what tasks the computers accomplish, and be prepared to
discuss what you have learned."
"10. Pick two career opportunities in the computer field that
interest you. Find out what education, training, and experience
those positions require. Report what you learn to your counselor."
Does anyone know of an organization in Northern VA that has public
tours of their computer rooms / server farms (just looking through
a glass wall into the room would be OK). I think some of the boys
(and their parents) would be fascinated impressed by the blinking
lights, deafening air conditioners, cables strung everywhere, etc.
