WOW Science Week

Event Details

We are bringing weird science to you in the form of STEM kits with activities tied to cub STEM awards! This is a STEM Day Camp in a box, activities mailed to you, with special LIVE presentations given online every day at lunchtime for youth in grades K-5.  The theme is World of Weird, so join us for #WOWScienceWeek



What is the World of Weird Science Week ?


Date: July 12-16, 2021

What: The week is comprised of 15 weird science activities (kits for which are mailed to youth)  + 5 special LIVE Lunch Hour STEM presentations (including virtual tours and competitions!)

Who: Activities are designed for girls and boys grades K-5

How to participate: A parent, or den leader will want to receive the kits, receive the instructions and lead the fun!

Youth will receive:

  • a kit of materials to guide them thru the week of WOW Science activities (detailed below!)
  • #WOWscienceWeek patch

Activities include the following themes:

  • Animation
  • Spectroscopy
  • Food Science
  • Magical Chemistry
  • Space Exploration
  • Cryptography


Relation to Awards: Activities will fulfill various components of Cub Nova Awards and Adventures, but no one Nova or Adventure will be completed in whole. This week is all about weird science, exploring and cultivating a love for STEM! Youth will receive a certificate upon completion of #WOWscienceWeek to share with unit leaders and receive credit for the requirements completed.  

How to get the kits: Two options: 

  1. Pick up the kits: during the week June 28 - July 2 from the Council office in Bethesda, MD. 
  2. Have your kit mailed to you! For $15 we will ship the kit to you (anywhere in the US)! Select this option during check-out and enter your mailing address.
