The BSA’s STEM initiative gives Scouts an opportunity to explore science, technology, engineering, and mathematics related concepts and learn how STEM knowledge is used in everyday life and in the professional world. The aim is to expose youth to new opportunities and help build interest in the STEM-related careers that are so crucial to our future economy.

💥 Saturday Spotlight 💥
Eagle Scout, Maximilian M. was very conservation-minded with his Eagle Scout project!

Max led his fellow Scouts in building bat boxes to be placed in Carondelet Park in St. Louis. The bat houses provided bats a place to settle and safely raise their young in the park rather than surrounding homes or city buildings. Bats eat around 1,000 insects a night, so these houses also provide bug control in the area. Further, bats play an essential role in the pollination of the park.

Congratulations, Max!

That was one thought my son had, then he was asked - who will maintain them afterwards? Both locations he thought of weren't sustainable so he's going a different route. I'm so happy to see this! We love bats and they're so beneficial. Good job! 🤓❤️👍

Congrats from Eagle 1963

Congratulations Max! Welcome to the Eagle’s nest

Congratulations! Eagle class of 1985
