In 2018, the Mt. Diablo Silverado STEM Committee volunteers launched a pilot program to offer the Boy Scout Nova Awards and Supernova Activities at Camp Wolfeboro. The program was very well received and plans are underway to expand the program in 2019. This year we are working with the camp staff to offer–Shoot!, Start Your Engines!, Whoosh!, and one of the newest Nova Award, Splash!. We will be exploring ways to expand the opportunities for Supernova activities, too. Stay tuned to this space for updates.
Dr. Charles H. Townes Supernova Award Opportunity
Webelos and AOLs come join us for a 6-week opportunity to learn all about science, technology, engineering, and math while earning Cub Scouting’s highest STEM Award the Dr. Charles H. Townes SUPERNOVA Award. Over the course of six weeks, scouts will work with a mentor to explore different areas of STEM, from building a circuit with Scouts BSA, attending a geological hike, to seeing how science, technology, engineering and math affect their daily lives.
We will begin on Monday, September 9th and meet every Monday evening until October 14th at MDSC Council Service Center (800 Ellinwood Way, Pleasant Hill). We will begin at 6:30 PM each night and go for 60-90 minutes.
The cost for this is $45/scout and includes the award and all the necessary supplies. Register Here.
