Last spring I shared a printout to help girls at the Pioneer / Patriot Level complete the Computer Fun Merit Badge (HERE). So, I decided it was only fair to create one for the Explorers.
Requirement #10 has the girls research how computer programs are created and the purpose of different commonly used programs. If you right-click the image below you will be able to save a pdf version of the handout I created to help complete this badge.
NOTE: The requirements have been greatly simplified here. Please be sure to read the full text in the Girl Handbook to make sure you fully understand the requirements.
