APRIL 2016: Catalina Council, Boy Scouts of America STEM Project
STEM Scouts (“STEM” stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is a co-ed program for youth in 3rd -12th grades created by Boy Scouts of America in 2013 to help reduce the gap between the supply and demand for STEM qualified employees to fill future STEM jobs. STEM Scouts is currently in the secondary pilot phase. Catalina Council was chosen as one of 12 second year pilot sites—out of 273 Councils nationwide—because Tucson has a strong technology base. The Council also has a strong traditional Scouting volunteer base that is committed to STEM Scouts. STEM Scouts meet in a "Lab" once a week for 90 minutes at their school to have hands-on STEM experiences. STEM Scouts covers subjects in fun, focused modules. Each theme-based module lasts four to six weeks and is chosen a month in advance with the input of participating students.
MARCH 2016: Tu Nidito
Tu Nidito provides comfort hope and support to Arizona children who are grieving a serious medical condition of themselves, a parent or who are impacted by the death of a special person in their life.
