Working together with Microsoft, the Boy Scouts of Americal is offering STEM Advancement opportunities for Cub and Boy Scouts.


STEM or Science Technology Engineering, and Mathematics is one of the newer offerings of the Boy Scouts of America to address current needs for technology in society. The BSA program is called STEM Nova. Microsoft is offering classes to be held at the Freehold Mall on the dates indicated. I found out about this late but we can register and sometimes get on a waiting list.

Let me know as soon as possible if you are interested. We will arrange transportation to those who can attend.

Belt loops and merit badges are part of the requirements for the STEM Nova awards. The STEM committee has arranged with Microsoft to offer a series of STEM related advancements that Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts can earn. The STEM advancement weekends will be held on the dates mentioned on the registration page
