These three books support the new NOVA Awards program offered by the Boy Scouts of America. This program incorporates learning with cool activities and exposure to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The hope is that the requirements and activities for earning these awards will stimulate an interest in STEM-related fields as they show how Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics apply to everyday living and the world around them. Counselors and mentors help bring this engaging, contemporary, and fun program to life for youth members.

All requirements may be found in the Nova awards guidebooks, available through our Patriots’ Path Scout Shops—one for Cub Scouts, one for Boy Scouts, and one for Venturers. The requirements can be completed with a parent or an adult leader as the counselor (for the Nova awards) or mentor (for the Supernova awards). Each guidebook includes a section for the counselor and mentor.
