Bank of America Supports Scouting With Grant

July 14, 2017

The Greater St. Louis Area Council, Boy Scouts of America received a $5,000 grant from Bank of America to fund two new STEM Scouts lab locations this fall in St. Louis City and North St. Louis County.

The grant will allow 25 students to learn about science, technology, engineering, and math as part of the STEM Scouts lab. Using experiential activities and interaction with STEM professionals, the STEM Scouts program helps girls and boys grow in character and skills as they explore their curiosity about STEM fields.

STEM Scouts is a national pilot program from the Boy Scouts of America, focused on fun ways for girls and boys, grades 3 – 12, to learn more about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The aim is to expose youth to new opportunities and help them develop the STEM skills critical for the future work force.
