The BSA STEM in Scouting awards program began in 2012 and is broken down into two different sections: NOVA and SUPERNOVA.
For scouts seeking a greater STEM challenge, 7 SUPERNOVA awards are available for scouts to earn at their various program levels.
Go to the bottom of this page to download the Capitol Area Council STEM NOVA Committee SuperNOVA worksheets in English or Spanish.
Since 2012 the Capitol Area Council has awarded about a hundred Cub Supernovas and only a handful of Scout Supernovas.
The medallions come from BSA National, are real metal, and are worn around the neck. Contact the Council STEM Nova Committee to have a committee member present these to youth at your unit/district event.
The Scout Shop has a certificate that you may customize for each scout, suitable for framing. They also sell small bar pins that are worn on the uniform for earning bronze, silver, or gold level.
