What was great about it?
The BSA STEM Nova/SuperNova awards can be used by all youth ages regardless of BSA participation; BSA members, including Venture Crew girls, may earn awards through the program. This program is a two-tiered program. The Nova awards are designed to interest youth in STEM by being fun and doable. The SuperNova awards are designed for the youth that is interested in the STEM fields and wants to dig deeper, to do interesting activities using scientific research principles.
