Nova Awards are the BSA Awards focused on STEM – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Supernova Awards recognize young men and women in Venturing who go further in their STEM explorations.
Venturing Nova Award – Up and Away (Fluid Dynamics)
Up and Away is the Venturing Nova Award for investigating fluid dynamics. To earn this award, Venturers must complete an exploration related to the movement of liquids or gasses. Venturers also calculate terminal velocity on Earth and on different planets, design a way to drop rescue supplies, or test airfoils.
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The NOVA Awards program combines knowledge of STEM concepts with hands on activities.
