stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. These disciplines are considered by many to be the foundation of an advanced society. In many forums -- including political, governmental, and academic -- the strength of the STEM workforce is viewed as an indicator of a nation's ability to sustain itself.
To engage our youth members in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, the Boy Scouts of America has created new program initiatives that emphasizes STEM in the context of the current advancement programs.
The BSA's STEM initiative gives Scouts an opportunity to explore relevant skills and experiences and to be recognized for their achievements. The aim is to expose youth to new opportunities and help them develop the STEM skills critical for the competitive world marketplace. Our council is preparing itself to implement these initiatives.______________________________________________

CUB SCOUT STEM DAY - Saturday, May 4
The first ever Cub Scout STEM Day was a huge success. Much thanks goes to Monsanto and Mad Science for the facilities and supportive staff. Our Cub Scout STEM committee members were also extremely helpful to have an organized day - Steve Masaki, Michele Elkins, John Kirkpatrick, and Mike Vickery. 325 Cub Scouts were able to take advantage of this opportunity earning their Geology and Science belt loops. This event also helped these young men on their way to earning a NOVA award. For pics of the event in action, please go to this link. Thanks to all the Packs for their promotion and we hope to have another Cub Scout STEM Day planned in the fall... more news to come.
THE FIRST TWENTY TWO RECIPIENTS OF THE SUPERNOVA AWARD PRESENTED IN GREATER ST. LOUIS
The first six Scouts who earned the new Boy Scouts of America’s Supernova Award in the Greater St. Louis Area Council were presented their recognitions on Feb. 5, 2
013, during the New Horizons’ District monthly Scouter meeting at Manchester United Methodist Church.
The five Webelos from Pack 304 in Wildwood earned the Dr. Charles H. Townes Supernova Award: Grant McDaniel, Reilly Lewis, Michael Colletti, Zachary Muller, and AJ Nolan. Christopher Colletti from Troop 782 in Ellisville earned the Dr. Bernard Harris Supernova Award. Thanks goes to Teresa Colletti serving as the Webelos Supernova mentor and Lisa Balbes for serving as Christopher's mentor.
The next sixteen Scouts who earned the Dr. Charles H. Townes Supernova Award in the Council were presented their recognitions on March 5, 2013 during the Boone Trails District Roundtable at the Cottleville Knights of Columbus Hall.
From Pack 972: Colby Ackley, Ryan Hillyer, Jacob Welsh, Andrew Barrow, Jimmy Orsund, and Evan Bailey. From Pack 968: CJ (Craig) Butler, Justin Burski, Jesse Moore, Mason Stromlund, Ethan Zink, Henry Roos, Dylan Nordmann, Joshua Kranz, and Adam Steiner. And from Pack 957: Garrett Hudson.
Thanks goes to these Scouts Mentors: Mike Zink, Dr. Ackley, and LaDonna Hudson.
Congratulations to these young men on this noteworthy achievement and inspiring fellow Scouts to learn more about the world of STEM. Please see the article for the six Scouts at this Patch link or at the Suburban Journals link.

________________________________________________________________________________________NEW STEM AWARDS - NOVA AND SUPERNOVA - NOW AVAILABLE!!!
The promotion video from Dr. Bernard Harris can be seen here. Dr. Bernard Harris
award programs were introduced at the BSA Annual Meeting in May 2011. The awards are now available and guidebooks can be downloaded at the links below! Guidebooks can also be purchased in the Scout shops for $3. Instructions on how to implement the awards program are found in the guidebooks. From now through May 2013
, though the NOVA patch is an earned award, any unit can buy one
patch to have as an example to show to their Scouts or Venturers. We hope by doing this, the youth can see what the patch looks like up close and will be inspired to work on this new advancement program. Beyond May and the one patch, units must provide a completed advancement report to get any more NOVA patches. The NOVA Award
program consists of individual activity elements in various STEM topics structured for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, & Venturers. These topics, or four NOVA awards for each program level, are designed to encourage participation and to increase interest in STEM by making it relevant and fun. The NOVA award will be a distinctive pocket patch with a separate pin-on device awarded for each individual topic completed by the youth, up to three pins. See the printable worksheet links below....Any Scouter or parent can help be a COUNSELOR for the NOVA awards with unit approval -- there is no paperwork for this process. The SUPERNOVA Award
program is similar to the BSA Hornaday Award
Program. The basic requirements include earning certain academic pins for Cub Scouts, activity badges for Webelos and merit badges for Boy Scouts, plus completing additional, more rigorous STEM-related requirements. The Venturing requirements are based on more independent achievement and teaching activities. SUPERNOVA is designed to encourage and recognize more in-depth achievement in STEM. The SUPERNOVA awards are medals on neck ribbons. See the printable worksheets below...
For the SUPERNOVA (on all program levels), MENTORS must be approved by the district Advancement chairman or district STEM chairman
. The application form link is below, and Youth Protection Training must also be taken. Mentors should be an expert in a STEM-related field (i.e., scientists, engineers, technologists, science teachers, math teachers, etc.). Only if a mentor is willing to work with two or more Scouts on the SUPERNOVA at the same time will the exception of a parent with a STEM background be allowed. Scouters with a STEM background may work with Scouts in their unit and encouraged as well outside of their own unit.

As the economy struggles and college costs rise, scholarships are becoming more important than ever. So the National Eagle Scout Association (NESA) is proud to announce that it has permanently funded a new annual Eagle Scout scholarship.
The NESA STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Scholarship will be awarded annually to an Eagle Scout who intends to major and pursue a career in one of those fields. Applicants must submit the Eagle Scout Academic Scholarships application (available from NESA.org
) by Jan. 31, 2012. The application must include a signed statement -- one the applicant has written -- that details his education and career goals in a STEM-related field, as well as a signed reference letter from a high school teacher in that field. The first NESA STEM scholarship will be awarded on June 1, 2012, at the Boy Scouts of America’s National Annual Meeting in Orlando, Fla.
The new scholarship aligns with the BSA’s renewed emphasis on promoting science and technology, fields where American students seriously lag their counterparts around the world. (Three-fourths of America’s fastest growing occupations require significant math and science preparation, yet less than 15 percent of high school graduates are prepared to pursue scientific or technical training in college, according to one study.) For more information on the BSA’s STEM initiative, visit scouting.org/stem.aspx
new Blastcar™ racing activity is a merit-badge-driven activity intended
for Boy Scouts. Scouts can use their knowledge to experience the
engineering design process through sketching an idea for their racer,
laying out a design, constructing the car, conducting trial tests,
modifying their design, and adding finishing details. Scouts design
their racers for optimum performance on the course(s) they’ve engineered
as a team.
Kit contains a pine
wood block measuring 10" x 2 1/4" x 1 7/8", four racing slick wheels,

For local robotics programs to experience at the Cub Scout and Boy Scout level, the FIRST program is a recommended option. www.usfirst.org or at the local website www.stlfirst.org
FIRST stands for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. The FIRST LEGO League
(FLL) annually introduces students ages 9 to 14 (10 youth per team) to
real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots to
complete tasks on a thematic playing surface. FLL teams, guided by their
imaginations and adult coaches, discover exciting career possibilities
and, through the process, learn to make positive contributions to
Each year FLL releases a new "challenge" for teams. The
Challenge is released in early September and focuses on a different
scientific topic or question each year. You don’t need to wait until
September to get started though. Knowing what to expect will help your
team hit the ground running. The challenge has three parts: the Robot
Game, the Project, and the FLL Core Values.
In the Robot Game,
the students build and program an autonomous (no remote control) LEGO
MINDSTORMS® robot to score points by performing mission tasks. These
missions will be inspired by the Challenge theme. Missions require the
robot to navigate, capture, transport, or deliver objects on a printed
mat (the Field). The robot has 2 ½ minutes to complete as many missions as possible.
the Project, teams learn more about the science behind the Challenge
theme. The students use their creativity to design a solution (or modify
an existing solution) to solve a real-world problem. Even though teams
do not know the exact details of the Challenge, they can begin
researching the theme as soon as it is announced.
Some our local
Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts have experienced FLL and it is a great Pack or
Troop project to take on. FIRST also has Jr FLL for students age 6 to 9. Similar to FLL but at a level more suited for younger Scouts.
tournaments happen around the St. Louis area and the World Championship
Festival has taken place at the Edward Jones Dome. All FIRST events
in the area are free to the public to view.
Boy Scout Troops may also want to try out FIRST Tech Challenge
(FTC). FTC, for 14 to 18 year old youth, is designed for those who
want to compete head to head, using a sports model. Teams of up to 10
students are responsible for designing, building, and programming their
robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams. The robot
kit is reusable from year-to-year and is programmed using a variety of
languages. Teams, including coaches, mentors and volunteers, are
required to develop strategy and build robots based on sound engineering
principles. Awards are given for the competition as for well as for
community outreach, design, and other real-world accomplishments.
Start up team costs range from $1,200 to $1,300 for the first year and
$400 to $500 for following years.
FLL and FTC are great
activities for your Pack or Troop to adopt and help your Scouts toward
earning their Robotics Merit Badge. If your unit is already involved
with FIRST, please let Tom know at email@example.com
The World Championships for all FIRST programs will
happen in 2013 the weekend of April 25-27, Thursday thru Saturday, at
