Scouts will need to have proof of earned merit badges with working on the NOVA award if not completing a badge that coorespondes with the NOVA award they will work on at STEM U. They should bring a 'copy' of their cards not the original.

An individual Scout registration form will needed to be printed and submitted before Friday, December 14th with the Scout's choices. The pdf will be available to download with the email receipt after registering and will share what requirements are due before the event. The sooner the forms are turned, the sooner the Scouts will be notified on which badge/NOVA to work on.

If the Scouts wish to complete their NOVA Award at STEM U without getting a partial, they will also need to submit the NOVA form that provides details that they watched about 3 hours of STEM related TV shows. The pdf will also be available to download on receipt of payment.
