BSA STEM Nova and Supernova awards

BSA established the Nova and Supernova Awards programs to stimulate Scout and Venturer interest in STEM-related fields and show how science, technology, engineering and mathematics apply to everyday living and the world around them.  There are different topics and requirements for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers.

The Supernova Awards program go beyond the Nova Awards and build on them to further explore interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
