12:30 - 12:45: Check-in and welcome

12:45PM - 1:30PM: What is STEM?  

This is a national training course. Dr. Arden Dougan, the National STEM Committee Training Chair and the NCAC STEM Committee Chair, will be teaching this course.

1:30PM - 2:30PM: Supernova Mentor & Nova Counselor Training

Official Training numbers are D82 & D83. This training is also offered at Pow Wow & University of Scouting. 

2:30 PM - 3:45 PM: Hands-on STEM Activities for Cubs, Boy Scouts and Venturing Scouts

Our goal is to present to you over two dozen STEM activities that you can run at a unit meeting, camporee, or summer camp. For each activity, we will have explanations of the science, the tie to the Nova Award and directions to activity kits & resources so you can bring STEM to your next meeting. 

3:45 - 4PM: Q&A and Wrap-Up

Registration: Everyone is welcome! We have structured the agenda so that you can walk in only having heard the acronym STEM, but will leave prepared to bring this program to your district.

If you have already taken the Supernova Mentor & Nova Counselor training, and wish only to attend the Activities session, that is great too! Just let us know in the Comments section when you register.
