STEM Scouts is a values-based, character development program that expands Scouts’ Science, Technolgy, Engineering and Math (STEM) knowledge as they build character, citizenship and mental fitness.
Using hands-on, experiential activities, the goal of STEM Scouts is to instill values and build character by encouraging the natural curiosity of young minds and their interest in STEM fields. Their growing knowledge may also translate into the STEM-related careers that are so crucial to our country’s economy.
STEM Scouts uses Boy Scouts of America methods, such as the Scout Oath and Law, setting and achieving goals, leadership skills and adult role models. The program aims to produce young men and women who show leadership, display confidence, realize their skills and limitations, respect others’ opinions, become problem solvers in all aspects of life, look for opportunities to serve others, demonstrate good citizenship and show integrity in all phases of their lives.
