Awards Abound from the STEM Committee

In the month of June, the STEM committee in Patriots’ Path Council handed out its 6th Super Nova Medal to a Cub Scout from Pack 49 at the Tradeshow of Scouting and two Distinguished Citizen Awards at the Inaugural Project STEM Dinner. The Super Nova Medal is a nationally supported award given to Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers who have completed the requirements stated in the STEM Nova and Super Nova manuals. Patriots’ Path Council is anxiously awaiting the first Boy Scout and Venturer to earn the award. It could be you!

On June 3, 2014, Joel Bloom, President of New Jersey Institute of Technology, and Brian Maclean, Vice-President of Elizabethtown Gas Company, received the Distinguished Citizen Award for their service to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The lifetime work of both men has inspired growth in every field of STEM.
