WHAT IS AN INTERACTIVE DIGITAL MERIT BADGE PAMPHLET?
Interactive digital merit badge pamphlets are a digital version of the traditional paper merit badge pamphlets. They have space for much more material, as well as multimedia and interactive content that isn’t possible in a print pamphlet. In the digital version, you’ll find:
- Search capabilities to save you time
- Videos, including “how to” videos, career bios, virtual tours and multimedia experiences
- Simulations, animations, slide shows and graphics
- Interactive Q&As
