The Andrew Jackson will begin offering NOVA Awards opportunities to Scouts who would like to participate in these "extra" Scouting Activities.  NOVA (STEM) Awards are rarely earned by Scouts due to the amount of individual work it required to accomplish each Requirement.  "STEM Nova Awards STEM—Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics STEM is part of an initiative the Boy Scouts of America has taken on to encourage the natural curiosity of youth members and their sense of wonder about these fields through existing programs" (Scouting.org).
 
The first Nova award Nova award patch. After that, a Scout can earn additional Nova awards, each one recognized with a separate pi (π) pin-on device that attaches to the patch. The patch and the devices represent each of the four STEM topics—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Scouts who would like to excel after earning 3 NOVA Awards, my be interested in working towards one of the two Supernova Awards which provides an even more rigorous curriculum as Scouts continue to go above and beyond within their Scouting Journey.
 
Scouts who choose to participate in the NOVA Awards must understand they will be completing most of the requirements on their own before the session is taught.  The requirements each Scout has completed will be discussed within the session with the NOVA Award Counselor to ensure they have completed each requirement as written in order to satisfy requirements in order to "Earn" these Awards.  If a student has participated in STEM activities in School such as robotics, programming, design, etc., they will be able to use these skills to help meet many of the requirements.
