Boy Scout Nova Award
There are six topics for which Boy Scouts can earn Nova awards. The Nova patch is earned for the first award and then a pi (π) pin-on device that attaches to the patch is earned for each of the other topics. The topics represent the four STEM topics - science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Purchase a Nova awards guidebook, available through local Scout shops. The requirements can be completed with a parent or an adult leader as the counselor. Each guidebook includes a section for the counselor and mentor.
The award patch is a 'temporary' patch with a hangloop and should be displayed centered on the right pocket, hanging from the pocket button.
Scouts should also consider earning the Boy Scout Supernova award.
Each of the topics listed here are links to files of requirements and counselor notes:
- Let It Grow
- Mendel's Minions
- Start Your Engines!
- Hello World
- Up and Away
- Next Big Thing
- Designed to Crunch
