When the Baltimore Area Council tried to develop a STEM camp they knew just whom to ask: the guys in Troop 944 in Baltimore, Maryland.
The Scouts met multiple times to discuss ideas and share their thoughts on what a summer camp focusing on science, technology, engineering and math could look like. Venturers from Crew 314 were later involved in expanding the program. The result: STEM-botics, a weeklong event that offered science-related merit badges and activities such as drone flying, 3-D printing, cyber security and robot fighting.
Instead of a COPE course, the camp offered SETE: Scientific Enabling Team Experience. Scouts from 38 different troops and five different councils attended last summer’s STEM-botics event at Camp Spencer near Whiteford, Md.
