NOVA and STEM Adventures in Virtual Advancements

Event Details

STEM NOVA  -Virtual Adventures-  is here to excite and expand a sense of wonder in your Scouts!

Modules are set up encouraging the natural curiosity of Scouts and broadening their knowledge about different STEM -Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics- fields. Various modules allow Scouts to explore the basic principles of STEM with registered counselors while discovering how fun and fascinating STEM can be, along with how STEM applies in today's world.

BSA STEM has two level of awards. While NOVA Awards are the basic level, SUPERNOVA Awards are a step up, offering a super challenge to those that enjoy one. Discover how the STEM NOVA Awards program helps you Scout 'Be Prepared. For Life.'  Scouts will receive gold cards to take back to their units (Troop or Crew) for recognition of their efforts. (Gold cards work on the same concept as Merit Badges' Blue Cards.)

Cost:  $5.00 per session.
