STEM Unit Criteria
Summary: Each Cub Scout Pack and Boy Scout Troop, Team or Crew is eligible to earn a new designation as a Certified STEM Unit. Units earn this MCC designation by committing to making STEM a priority in their unit. Families today are looking for organizations where their sons are exposed to STEM, and Scouting has had this part of its program since inception in 1910.
Units earning this designation will be approved by their Field Service Council STEM Committee and the MCC STEM Director. They will be able to promote this status to their community by wearing the special insignia pin (not required), and additionally, their “Be a Scout” description may be updated to include this emphasis. They will be allowed to promote this designation via their website, FB/social media and recruitment efforts.
