STEM Scouts®

STEM Scouts® is a national pilot program focused on fun ways for girls and boys to learn more about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The National Capital Area Council recently adopted the program, thus making STEM Scouts® open to boys and girls in three divisions: grades 3-5; grades 6-8; and grades 9-12 from this fall in the DMV.

In the STEM Scouts® program, educational content, developed and vetted by STEM educators, is designed to be immersive and to inspire teamwork, problem solving and independent thinking. Through hands-on activities delivered directly to the unit, this 26-week program is ultimately designed to be challenging, thought-provoking and, especially, fun.

To learn more, visit or join our upcoming information night. BSA’s Assistant Director of STEM Programs will host the first information session from 7-8PM on September 18th.  Sign up here ( ) to let us know if you plan to join in person or via conference call.
