Last weekend, our group of 8 Cub Scouts, including 3 Cub and STEM Scouts, completed the “Cub Scout portion” of the DC STEM Trek. We hiked all 14 stops from the Smithsonian Metro to the Boy Scout Memorial.
Our Scouts had a great time! They came prepared, answered every Cub Scout and On-site question, learned a lot about how STEM helped in the creation of Washington DC and enjoyed the time spent together.
While we are local Cub Scout pack from Ashburn, VA, we did have one STEM Scout from our Lab, fly from Florida to DC just to join our hike!
Editor’s note: The DC STEM Trek was designed by GTroop 1853 to encourage families to explore the Nation’s capital from a STEM perspective! To see the Trek Guide, visit www.ncacbsa.org/stem
