EINSTEIN RECOGNITION DINNER
2022 Einstein Recognition Dinner.
This event is our eighth opportunity to honor our local Scouts' accomplishments for obtaining a Supernova Award or multiple awards and to recognize our STEM volunteers and sponsors. Supernova Recipients in attendance will receive a token of appreciation from the Greater St. Louis Area Council.
Thanks to the generosity of the Great Rivers Confluence Foundation, our key sponsor, the event is free for Supernova Award Recipients and one adult per family. Seating is limited, but additional seats can be purchased for guests of the recipient and all other event attendees.
This year's event will be on Friday, November 11 at the Magic House.
Please turn in Supernova Award applications by October 25th. Registration information will be out in early October.
Cub Scout Coding Workshop (Ages 7-11)
$35 for a morning of introductory coding and a chance to learn about robotics and computers.
With mentoring from a high school robotics team, Cub Scouts will break into teams to build a three-wheeled robot using TETRIX Prime (a metal robot building system), wire it with motors, sensors and a Micro:bit brain, and then program the Micro:bit brain to drive autonomously and by remote control from another Micro:bit. Each Scout will receive a Micro:bit kit to take home, and the programming skills they learn can be used to make many more things with the Micro:bit micro-controller. A roster will be sent out in advance to help with leadership and carpooling. Only 45 spots!
Scouts BSA Robotics Orientation (Ages 11-17), free session
For past participants in Scoutbotics at the Scouts BSA level, please bring your robot assembled and learn more on programming techniques. Also bring a thumbdrive and fresh batteries.
This will be a practice and learn session to make the most out of your bot and prepare you for the next event/tournament of Scoutbotics in spring of 2023. The bots will be enhanced to use remote controls to steer it!
Don't miss this FREE opportunity to get an edge up and learn all the possibilities of your robot.
