Scouts are seeking STEM activities more than ever before. Interest in natural science, electronics, sustainable materials, computer science, gaming and other topics make STEM among the most popular activities and merit badges in every Scouting level.
To support our scouts in this growing need, we are seeking adult volunteers from Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturing and Sea Scouting to rebuild a Council STEM Committee. We hope to have every District represented on this committee.
What Does the Committee Do?
- Identify resources and provide support for Packs, Troops, Crews and Ships to enable them to create fun STEM activities in their own programs
- Support District and Council activities where STEM content is desired
What is the Time Commitment?
- 4 Committee meetings per year
- Time to develop the materials and program as determined by the committee.
No special skills or knowledge are required, everyone interested in STEM and a desire to add to a great Scouting experience for our youth is welcome.
If you are interested in being a part of our new council STEM Committee or would like more information, contact Pete Liptrot at firstname.lastname@example.org.
