The Chattahoochee Council has partnered with the community partners to increase Scouting and incorporate STEM awareness in youth and offer them the opportunities to "Be Prepared for Life". STEM education is a Meta-discipline because it incorporates technology and engineering into a regular Scouting curriculum.

This effort will increase the awareness in the community and among parents that the Boy Scouts of America is, and always has been, concerned about making a difference in lives.

The mission of the Chattahoochee Council BSA is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

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). Using hands-on activities, STEM Scouts also encourages young minds’ natural curiosity and helps build interest in the STEM-related careers that are so crucial to our future economy.
