Using experiential activities and interaction with STEM professionals, the goal of the STEM Scouts program is to help young people grow in character and skills as they explore their curiosity about STEM fields. It is hoped that their growing knowledge will translate into the STEM-related careers that are so crucial to our country’s future economy. While the program focuses on future careers in STEM, it is ultimately designed to be challenging, thought-provoking and, most importantly, fun.
Science, technology, engineering, and math aren't just for the classroom anymore. STEM Scouts brings girls and boys together to shape, tinker, explore, and make. From robots to chemical reactions and circuits to insects, STEM Scouts gives kids the opportunity to dive into a breadth of STEM topics while meeting STEM professionals and learning to both work together and lead. The Crossroads of America Council, serving 26 counties across Central Indiana is proud to be apart of this pilot program from the Boy Scouts of America.
We are always looking for STEM professionals and people who just love working with kids to support all aspects of the program and excite more of our youth about STEM!
