  1. The importance of coding skills can not be overestimated in a world where AI, robotics, and big data dominate conversations about the future of work and whether traditional career paths are likely to become obsolete as technology advances accelerate. BSA has some relevant merit badges in these subjects (obviously "Programming", but also "Digital Technology" and "Robotics"), and has some new Nova awards (like "Hello World", "Cub Scouts Can Code", and "Execute") that can be earned by scouts at all levels. For these awards, scouts need to learn the basics of machine logic and how to implem
  2. Boy Scouts in Virginia helped the Frederick County Sheriff’s office convert a van into an incident response vehicle, they also helped put together a new command post that has satellite service. Boy Scout, Jonathan Williams says this project is part of his path to becoming an Eagle Scout. “It’s really hard getting up to a Life Scout, service hours are the hardest part, but I figured this one would be good because this will help save lives”, Williams said. Sergeant Dave Ellinger helped make the project possible. He says the idea came from their 1033 program which transfers excess milit
  3. Jason DiRenza, a 10 year old Scout, has loved to tinker with tools and toys, a hobby that propelled him to the national stage with an invention designed to give people more time to escape houses that are filling with deadly carbon monoxide gas. The Connecticut Safety Society honored him for the inclusion of safety, health, and environmental principles and ideologies into his invention, and he also received an award from the judges for the top invention in his judging circle Jason said he got the idea for his invention over lunch one day with his family when a discussion came up ab

  5. Pack 77 Den Leader and Southern Illinois University (SIU) associate math professor Wesley Calvert has created a new Nova award based on the mathematics of symmetry, Fearful Symmetry . A few years ago, SIU began playing host to an annual STEM University event, which gave scouts the chance to earn Nova and other merit awards. During the 2016 event, Calvert met Lisa Balbes, who serves on a national committee charged with reviewing proposals for such awards. “We talked about the need for additional math awards within the program, and after continued conversations with her and another m
  6. “All of them together make this gooey, but not so gooey slime,” explained 10-year-old Jonah Weber, who learned the importance of meticulous measurement and lab safety practices in the pursuit of discovery at the inaugural meeting. It doesn’t get more hands-on than stretching slime between fingers, adding different levels of liquid to see how it affects the material’s viscosity or sticking it to noses. “It was fun and creative,” Weber said. “What’s important is that it helps the Scouts be successful citizens,” Weber said. The scout said that Scout principles and STEM,
