Cub Scout Nova Award
(the National BSA office has told me that Lion and Tiger scouts may not earn any Nova awards)
There are currently eleven Nova award topics for Cub Scouts, with various new ones being added occasionally. 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 subsequent topic. The topics represent each of the four STEM areas -
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.
Each of the topics listed here are links to PDF files of requirements and counselor notes:
- Science Everywhere
- Down and Dirty
- Nova WILD!
- Out of this World
- Tech Talk
- Cub Scouts Can Code
- Up and Away
- 1-2-3 Go!
- Fearful Symmetry
- Uncovering the Past
