STEM and Nova Program

STEM in Scouting

STEM has been a part of the scouting program from the beginning. Studying nature and the world around us, applying scales and measurements to read a map, and starting a campfire all touch upon topics within the world of STEM. Whether a youth joins Cub Scouting, Scouts BSA, Venturing, or Sea Scouts, they will be engaging areas related to STEM.

For scouts interested in pursuing STEM interests, the BSA has created the Nova Award programs for scouting programs.

An even higher level of STEM exploration may be found with the Supernova Awards.
