The Cyber Chip for Scouts BSA comes in two different levels, depending on the Scout's grade.
Note: All Cyber Chips will expire annually. Each Scout will need to go to Netsmartz and complete 2 new resources to recommit to net safety and netiquette. Then, with the unit leader, the Scout can add the new date to the Cyber Chip card or certificate.
Current Scouts BSA requirements as of May 24, 2023.

Watch three of the following “Real-Life Story” videos to learn the impact on teens.
As an individual or patrol, use the EDGE method and the Student Project Kit to teach Internet safety rules, behavior, and “netiquette” to your troop or another patrol. You are encouraged to use any additional material and information you have researched. Each member of the patrol must have a role and present part of the lesson.
