Scouts@HMNS is proud to host our fourth annual STEM/Nova Day on Saturday, September 22rd for Cub Scouts, Webelos, Boy Scouts and their families! Scouts will have access to the Museum at a discounted rate while working towards requirements for Nova Awards. The program will begin at 9am and conclude at 1pm. Scouts will have the opportunity to work on certain STEM/Nova Awards during their visit to HMNS.

We’ll also have STEM Professional Booths available, so scouts can visit with STEM professionals from a variety of industries. Afternoon classes will be available to complete the required Adventures for both Nova Awards! Be sure to stop by the check-in table in the Museum’s Grand Hall that morning to access discounted pricing and discover what requirements you can meet!

We will be offering a variety of STEM/Nova Awards for Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. As the event gets closer, we will post the types of awards on this page as well as on our Scouts Facebook page. Check back for updates!

STEM Professional Booths

This year, we will be offering the opportunity for STEM organizations to host a STEM Professional Booth to talk with scouts and their families about science, technology, engineering and math! At each booth, organizations will have a STEM activity or demonstration to share with STEM/Nova participants as well as the general public visiting HMNS on STEM/Nova Day. For more information on hosting a STEM Professional Booth, read through the Frequently Asked Questions for STEM Professional Booths. To host a booth, email to scouts@hmns.org to receive an application as soon as they are available.
