STEM Prepares Scouts for Today and Their Future
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The BSA’s STEM initiative gives Scouts an opportunity to explore STEM-related concepts and learn how STEM knowledge is used in everyday life and in the professional world. The aim is to expose youth to new opportunities and help build interest in the STEM-related careers that are so crucial to our future economy.
To support this exploration of STEM, the BSA debuted the Nova and Supernova Awards program, an initiative that promotes an enthusiasm towards STEM and offers recognition and advancement for Scouts absorbed in STEM learning.
This program is continuously updated therefore the best place to stay up to date is by visiting the national page. http://www.scouting.org/stem.aspx
