What is the BSA Suffolk County Council STEM NOVA UNIVERSITY?

The BSA Suffolk County Council STEM NOVA UNIVERSITY (the “University”) was envisioned & then subsequently created by Jennifer Lamberti, a BSA Suffolk County Council STEM NOVA Counselor and Mentor in October, 2022.  The purpose of the University is to educate and train interested BSA Leaders within Suffolk County Council to become STEM NOVA Counselors and/or Mentors and become a member of the University.  Once a member of the University those members are provided tools and guidance to be able to conduct STEM NOVA courses.  

The Vision of the University is to have trained University members excited about the BSA STEM Nova program and provide them with a central location for sharing Course Materials, making it easier for those leaders/members to offer courses within their units and local area within Suffolk County.  The Mission of the University is to reach as many Scouts as possible that are interested in broadening their knowledge in STEM through fun and hands on labs and adventures ultimately leading to receiving one or more BSA Stem Nova Award(s).

What is the BSA Stem Nova Program?

The STEM Nova and Supernova Awards are available for Cub Scouts (Wolf Rank and Up), Scouts BSA, Venturers, and Sea Scouts.

These awards are administered by the local council.  

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. From archery to welding, Scouts can’t help but enjoy the wide range of STEM-related activities. To support this initiative, the BSA developed the STEM Nova Awards program so that youth members have fun and receive recognition for their efforts.
