Boy Scout Council of the National Capital Area Needs Your Help for Scout Engineering Day
Date: April 4, 2014
The Boy Scouts of America understands that the disciplines of STEM are considered by many to be the foundation of an advanced society. In many forums – including political, governmental and academic – the strength of the STEM workforce is viewed as an indicator of a nation's ability to sustain itself. To engage our youth members in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, the Boy Scouts of America has created new program initiative that emphasizes STEM in the context of the current advancement programs. BSA's STEM initiative gives Scouts an opportunity to explore relevant skills and experiences and to be recognized for their achievements. The aim is to expose youth to new opportunities and help them develop the STEM skills critical for the competitive world marketplace. Our council is preparing itself to implement these initiatives.
One of the highlights of the year is the Scout Engineering Day. For the third year in a row, MITRE is scheduled to host its Scout Engineering Day on April 4, 2014! Classes are open to registered Boy Scouts, Venturers, Varsity Scouts, and Sea Scouts, plus Cadet, Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts. Participants receive an event patch and Scouts can work on multiple STEM merit badges. Get involved and help educate the area's youth! If you are interested in getting involved in the Scout Engineering Day, reach out to Nicholas Maliszewskyj, Chair, NCAC STEM Committee, firstname.lastname@example.org.
