On June 9, 2018, the NCAC STEM Committee held the 3rd annual STEM University at the Microsoft Technology Center in Reston, VA. A special thanks to scouters and Microsoft employees, Damon DeSonier and Bill Cunnane, as well as Microsoft Corporation for making the facility available!
The day kicked off with an Einstein’s Science fair where Cubs and Scouts presented in a poster board style. Then adults and youth split off to separate activities. The adults engaged in a STEM & Special Needs session, and then selected from the following trainings: Supernova Mentor & Nova Counselor Training, Hands-on Science Activities, and STEM Roadmap to Success for Troops and STEM for Cub Scouts.
The Cub Scouts attended 6 rotations led by Boy Scout and adult leaders. Several of the activities helped with the new Nova Award, Fearful Symmetry!
