Report to the Nation: STEM


One of the highlights of the BSA’s Report to the Nation, an event at which representatives from the BSA traveled to Washington, D.C., to meet with Congress to highlight the BSA’s achievements for previous year, was the STEM presentation.

STEM, the new BSA program that emphasizes science, technology, engineering and mathematics, kicked off in 2011 thanks to a multi-year grant from ExxonMobil. The program is designed to bring a Scouting focus to skills that are relevant and needed in our competitive world.

The STEM program also features the NOVA Awards program presented for understanding the basics of STEM. There are separate NOVA awards for different ages of Scouts.
