Slide 4 - Session Objectives During this session you will learn the following items: What is STEM? What is the BSA response? What are “Counselors” and “Mentors”? How will the Old North State Council become “STEM-focused”? What support is available?
Slide 5 - What is STEM? Science Technology Engineering Mathematics
Slide 6 - Stacey Alston Principal of the STEM Early College At North Carolina A&T University Chair and Spokesman, Old North State Council STEM Committee

Slide 11 - WHY STEM? Our nation is at a crossroads… We live in a time of great opportunity, when the spirit of innovation can help us overcome challenges and ensure a prosperous and secure future.  To seize these opportunities we must position ourselves at the cutting edge of scientific discovery and technological innovation.
Slide 12 - WHY STEM? Our country is falling behind in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM): In 2009, just 34 percent of U.S. 8th graders were rated proficient or higher in a national math assessment. In an international exam given, U.S. high school students ranked 21st out of 30 industrialized nations in science and 25th in math. Only 43 percent of U.S. high school graduates in 2010 were ready for college work in math and 29 percent were ready in science.
Slide 13 - WHY STEM? STEM is the future. STEM education is an economic imperative. Experts say that technological innovation accounted for almost half of U.S. economic growth over the past 50 years, and almost all of the 30 fastest-growing occupations in the next decade will require at least some background in STEM.  STEM literacy is also critical because it has a profound and growing impact on our day-to-day lives. The National Science Foundation “estimates that 80% of the jobs created in the next decade will require some form of math and science skills.”
Slide 14 - WHY STEM?
Slide 15 - THE BSA RESPONSE THE BSA has partnered with ExxonMobil to increase STEM awareness in youth and offer them the opportunities to Be “Prepared for Life”
Slide 16 - THE BSA NOVA AWARD Cub Scout Science Everywhere (Science) Tech Talk (Technology) Swing! (Engineering) 1-2-3 Go! (Math) Boy Scout Shoot! (Science) Start Your Engines (Technology) Whoosh! (Engineering) Designed to Crunch (Math) Venturing Launch! (Science) Power Up (Technology) Hang On! (Engineering) Numbers Don’t Lie (Math)

Slide 18 - SUPERNOVA AWARDS CUB SCOUT and WEBELOS BOY SCOUT VENTURING Earning the NOVA award is not a prerequisite for the Cub Scout and Webelos Supernova Awards but is required for Boy Scout and Venturer Supernova Awards. Supernova Mentors operate like MB Counselors Award is more involved and challenging than the NOVA award.

Slide 25 - How Tough Are The Requirements? Cub Scout “Science Everywhere” Nova Award 3. Act like a scientist! Do EACH of the following: A. With your counselor, choose a question you would like to investigate. B. With a parent or your counselor, use the scientific method/process to investigate your question. Keep records of your question, the information you found, how you investigated, and what you found out about your question. C. Discuss your investigation and findings with your counselor.
Slide 26 - How Tough Are The Requirements? Boy Scout “Start Your Engines!” 4. Design and build a working model vehicle (not from a kit). A. Make drawings and specifications of your model vehicle. B. Include one of the following energy sources to power your vehicle: solar, wind, battery. C. Test your model. Then answer the following questions: 1. How well did it perform? 2. Did it move as well as you thought it would? 3. Did you encounter problems? How can they be corrected? D. Discuss with your counselor: 1. Any difficulties you encountered in designing and building your model 2. Why you chose a particular energy source 3. Whether your model met your specifications 4. How you would modify your design to make it better
Slide 27 - How Tough Are The Requirements? Venturing Dr. Albert Einstein Supernova Award 4. With guidance from your mentor, select an area of current STEM-related concern and develop a research project or experiment related to that area. This research project or experiment should be challenging and should require a significant investment of time and effort on your part. (A guideline would be approximately 100 hours.) If your mentor is not a specialist in the area of your project or experiment, he or she will solicit assistance from a specialist to serve as a STEM consultant. Execute the project or experiment. Prepare a complete and well-documented written report AND an oral presentation. Present both to your mentor and your local council Nova/STEM Committee.
