STEM University Open to Boy Scouts and Venturers!

STEM University

STEM University is a program for high-school age Boy Scouts and Venutrers from all across our council area to participate in a day of STEM related activities on the Kean University Campus in Union, NJ on December 12, 2015.

STEM University will provide a variety of workshops, lectures and hands on activities focusing on physics, mathematics, astronomy, robotics and engineering, working with faculty at Kean’s STEM Building; New Jersey’s Center for Science, Technology & Mathematics, and Kean’s Planetarium.

Scouts who attend will work on requirements for the Shoot!  Nova Award.  Additionally, participants will have rare access to the various Kean University STEM facilities including the Kean Planetarium and “the cave” — a 3-D virtual environment that allows participants to experience scientific research in a whole new way.

Scouts, guided by dedicated professionals, will see how science, math and physics make projectiles shoot into space, how we impact nature and explore the wonders of space. Scouts will receive a NOVA Awards Guidebook which features Scouting program activities incorporating STEM learning with cool Scouting activities and throughout the day, Scouts will work on a STEM patch.

Scout family members are invited to stay for tours around Kean University which includes a trip to the campus Barnes and Noble store.  Attendance is limited to the first 50 Scouts from all over our council who register ($25) for this day of learning and discovery.
