What’s better than a Scout learning about STEM?

A Scout learning about STEM at Philmont Scout Ranch! Philmont is the largest youth camp in the world and is an awesome outdoor classroom!

This June, Philmont Training Center is offering a course called “#Awesome – STEM Exploration” just for young men and women from 14-20 years old. Participants experience the back-country of New Mexico while they learn about the physics involved in climbing and the challenge course, how cartography and GIS are used in mapping at Philmont, study forestry techniques in the experimental forest at Cathedral Rock, learn about the history and biology of bears at Philmont, and much more!

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience Philmont Scout Ranch, the pinnacle of Scouting, while also learning all about STEM in the outdoors! The course runs from June 11-17 and costs $395 which includes food, lodging, and all of the activities affiliated with the course. Cost does not include transportation to and from Philmont Scout Ranch.

For more details, download this flier (Awesome – STEM Exploration) or email the course adviser Chris Jordan at jordance@att.net. You can also contact Colin Lemon at colin.lemon@scouting.org for general questions about Philmont Training Center courses and how to register.

I’ll be there taking a similar course so I hope to see you there!
