STEM Scouts helps girls and boys learn about science, technology, engineering and math through creative, hands-on activities, field trips and interaction with STEM professionals.
WHAT IS STEM SCOUTING?
- STEM Scouts is a national pilot program from the Boy Scouts of America
- For girls and boys and grades 3 – 12
- To learn more about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by using hands-on activities.
- The Hawk Mountain Council is home to 17 STEM Labs in Berks and Schuylkill Counties.
Using experiential activities and interaction with STEM professionals, the goal of the STEM Scouts program is to help young people grow in character and skills as they explore their curiosity about STEM fields. It is hoped that their growing knowledge will translate into the STEM-related careers that are so crucial to our country’s future economy. While the program focuses on future careers in STEM, it is ultimately designed to be challenging, thought-provoking and, most importantly, fun.
