Have you always wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to try scuba diving this is your chance to see what the excitement is all about. Scouts can choose to participate a Discover Scuba Diving class in a pool with instruction and supervision by certified Dive Masters. Scouts will get an easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world, including how SCUBA works and a chance to spend a few minutes underwater experiencing what it means to breathe underwater. This opportunity will occur Sunday night (not as a Merit Badge class), and Scouts who want to participate must bring the 2 attached SCUBA forms.
University faculty and staff will be present to help facilitate the activities associated with STEM Merit Badges and Nova Awards. Our camp goal is to match volunteers with their area of interest and expertise to provide these potential badge offerings:
Signs, Signals, & Codes
Science - 'Shoot' AND 'Let it Grow!'
Technology - 'Start your engines'
Engineering - 'Whoosh'
Math - 'Designed to Crunch'
Requirements for the Merit Badges could be viewed at: http://www.scouting.org/Home/BoyScouts/AdvancementandAwards/MeritBadges.aspx
Requirements for the Nova Awards can be viewed at: http://www.scouting.org/stem/Awards/BoyScouts.aspx
Once registered and classes are chosen, those badge/NOVA assignments are locked in. Review prereqs in the document available in the attachments box on this page. We encourage Scouts to work on their NOVA awards.
We hope this camp will not only help instill an appreciation for the STEM fields, but also create professional connections for these youth. Don’t miss this new experience at Southeast!PLEASE REVIEW THE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS CAMP IN THE 'ATTACHMENT' BOX TO THE RIGHT
