First award earned in the Scouts BSA Nova Award program. Worn on the right front pocket of the Scouts BSA uniform.
This award is designed for youth in the Sea Scouting/Venturing programs. Requirements must be completed while registered in the BSA in the appropriate program and subject to standard age limitations. The Boy Scouts of America’s STEM Nova Awards program incorporates learning with cool activities and exposure to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) for Cub Scouts, Webelos Scouts, Scouts BSA, Sea Scouts, and Venturers. These activities and associated awards stimulate interest in STEM-related fields, and show how these subjects appear in everyday life and the world around us.
