What are NOVA Awards?
The BSA’s STEM/NOVA Awards program is designed to introduce and encourage further study of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) by Cub Scouts. A Scout may earn all four Nova awards. The Supernova awards are designed to inspire further study. It is recommended that Cub Scouts complete at least two Nova awards before starting the requirements for the Supernova award.
More about NOVA Awards
Scouts may complete any Nova award with a parent or unit leader’s guidance. However, Supernova Awards mentors must be approved by the local council. (Note: Tiger Cubs are not eligible to participate in the STEM/NOVA Awards program.)
The acronym STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. This approach to education is designed to revolutionize the teaching of subject areas such as mathematics and science by incorporating technology and engineering into regular curriculum by creating a “meta-discipline.”
