Cyber Chip Requirements for Grades 4-5


  1. Read, commit to, and sign the Level I Internet Safety Pledge. (BSA Cyber Chip blue card)
  2. Watch the video “The Password Rap” and another video of your choosing. (NetSmartz.org/scouting)
  3. As an individual or with your den, use the Teachable Recipes to demonstrate Internet safety rules to your den leader, den, or pack. (NetSmartz.org/scouting)
  4. Discuss with your unit leader the acceptable standards and practices for using allowed electronic devices, such as phones and games, at your meetings and other Scouting events.


Note: All Cyber Chips will expire annually. Each Scout will need to “recharge” the chip by going back to the Netsmartz Recharge area. This space will hold new information, news, and a place for the Scout 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.
