Nova Awards are the BSA Awards focused on STEM – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The Cub Scout Nova awards program provides age appropriate activities in these areas.
For their first Nova Award, Cub Scouts earn a patch. For each other Nova award, Cub Scouts receive a pi (π) pin-on device to wear on the patch.
Supernova Awards recognize Cub Scouts who go further in their STEM explorations.
