What is STEM Scouting?
STEM Scouts (Coed – Ages 8-18). This is a brand-new pilot program in Tucson, AZ, focused on fun and exciting opportunities for elementary through high school girls and boys in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). It encourages the natural curiosity of members and their sense of wonder about the world around them.
The program helps young people understand how to apply STEM concepts in their everyday lives as well as develop leadership and communication skills. By giving them the opportunity to connect with STEM professionals, students can use their experiences to explore potential future careers. It is designed to be fast-paced, thought-provoking and, most importantly, FUN. STEM Scouts is a coed program of the Boy Scouts of America.
