STEM-ON-THE-GO! Nova Award Kits for Cub Scout Unit Leaders

STEM-on-the-Go is a comprehensive program outline and guide with a purpose to carry out the STEM Nova program. Each STEM on the Go box comes complete with a step-by-step Nova Award teaching guide, background and support materials, supplies for the lessons, and at least one hands-on experiment to apply concepts.

Should any units and/or staff be interested in learning more about the boxes, contact your local STEM Executive or to place an order for the STEM on the Go kits please contact Kris Przewoznik at (219) 779-2300 or kris.przewoznik@scouting.org. STEM on the Go kits are $70.00 per module i.e. Cub Scout - Swing, 1.2.3 Go, Science Everywhere, and Tech Talk and councils can purchase them for units to sign-out through their local Scout shops.

Thank you to the Challenger Center of Northwest Indiana, Calumet Council STEM volunteers, and Don Bak, STEM Committee member for your efforts in making STEM on the Go kits a reality. STEM on the Go makes implementing the Nova Awards for your den or pack easy and convenient for unit leaders - “fun with a Purpose.” We would also like unit leaders and parents to take our 3 minute survey to provide their feedback on the new STEM on the Go kits, and will have more information on that soon.

With the introduction of the new Nova and Supernova awards comes an opportunity for volunteer positions. A Nova counselor can be any registered adult age 21 or older. They must be registered under the new non-unit position and no fee is required.

Supernova mentors must be 21 or older and be subject matter experts in a STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) field and be registered under the new Supernova Mentor position.

For more information on how to become a Nova counselor or a Supernova mentor, please contact your local STEM Executive or STEM Market Director
