STEM & NOVA

STEMThere are is an exciting new development, that centers around Scouting's already developed program. As America realizes the need to build a workforce that's excited about STEM (science, technology, engineering & math), the BSA has developed the NOVA Awards program to highlight parts of the Scouting advancement and achievement offerings that already fall in-line with STEM topics.

The NOVA & Supernova Awards have taken pieces out of each program (i.e. Cub Scouts) to highlight each topic (science, technology, engineering & math). The Scout completes requirements in each category, and first earns a patch, and subsequently can earn 3 more pins. The Supernova program builds upon this, even further. Scouts can come away with increased interest and awareness of STEM in the world around them.

The Council is working to develop STEM opportunities with outside partners and incorporate these exciting topics into events where they may enhance the experience for Scouts or families.
