BSA’s NOVA Awards program incorporates learning with cool activities and exposure to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). The hope is that the requirements and activities for earning these awards stimulates interest in STEM-related fields and shows Scouts how STEM principles apply to everyday living and the world around them. Counselors and mentors help bring this engaging, contemporary, and fun program to life for youth members.
