This year, Troop 761 submitted an entry into a lottery and won to be able to attend the STEM Jamboree! The USNA STEM Jamboree is a one-day event hosted by the US Naval Academy (USNA) chapter of the National Eagle Scout Association (NESA). It is an opportunity for Scouts BSA to participate in various STEM activities and workshops led by USNA faculty and midshipmen. https://sites.google.com/view/usna-jamboree/
We are capped at 35 scouts and 5 adults. The cost to attend this event is $58 per scout. Broken down, it includes a $40 registration fee (Includes camping, a patch, lunch, and courses), plus $16 for Sat breakfast, Sat dinner, and Sunday breakfast. We will be ordering pizza and bringing quick breakfast foods so that we do not have to bring the trailer.
Depending on the number of attendees and transportation needs, we may consider renting a van. It all depends on the number of sign-ups.
