No Cost To Attend – just register!
Limited to 25 Cub Scouts grades 2-4

Due to a generous grant from “Valero Benefit for Children”, we are excited to announce our  S.T.E.M. Academy. 

This is the first of four academies that will be held during 2020.

All academies are different, have cool experiments, fun activities and interactive learning.

Technology will be the area of study at this first academy.  We will explore how a simple machine and  modern day technology affect our everyday lives.  Tech Talk and Swing! are the sessions to be covered.

 TECH TALK – How is technology used in the Cub Scout adventures of

  • World of Sound
  • Build It
  • Movie Making
  • Finding Your Own Way

SWING!  Simple Machines can be fascinating.  How are they used in

  • Paws of Skill
  • Baloo the Builder
  • A Bear Goes Fishing

There is not a charge to attend this academy but you must register for proper planning.  We are limited to 25 Cub Scouts but be sure to add your name to the waitlist (if applicable) just in case.  Due to the nature of the adventures, Cub Scouts must currently be in grades 2-4.

Registration will open soon.

Question please contact Rob Groebner.
