Learning by doing is a watchword of Scouting. Scouting and Outing go hand in hand, so entomology is well suited to the scout method of training. An important factor in character building is a better understanding and appreciation of Nature. Insects with their limitless varieties of forms, array of colors, diversity of habits and their interrelationships serve admirable for studying Nature. One method of scout advancement is through Merit Badge activities, and one of the many subjects for which a scout can qualify for such a badge is Insect Life. Boys show a keen interest in collecting and field studies of insects, especially if given a little encouragement and assistance. Field trips, or "bug hikes" serve to keep up the interest.
