STEM/Nova Program for Cub Scouts STEM—Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics ~ talks about the Nova & Supernova Awards also

STEM is part of an initiative the Boy Scouts of America has taken on to encourage the natural curiosity of youth members and their sense of wonder about these fields through existing programs. From archery to welding, Scouts can't help but enjoy the wide range of STEM-related activities. To support this initiative, the BSA developed the Nova Awards program so that youth members have fun and receive recognition for their efforts.

What Are the Nova Awards? The Boy Scouts of America developed the Nova Awards program to excite and expand a sense of wonder in our Scouts.  By  working with  an adult  counselor  or mentor,  the various  modules allow them  to  explore the  basic principles of STEM and discover how fun and fascinating STEM can be. The Supernova awards are offered for those who  enjoy  a  super  challenge.  For  more  information  about  STEM  and  the  Nova  Awards  program,  visit Discover how the Nova Awards program helps youth be "Prepared. For Life."
