The Scout Council provides all of the training volunteers need to oversee a successful STEM Lab. Leaders don’t need all the answers, just an enthusiasm for working with curious young minds. Trained leaders and STEP (Short-Term, Experienced Professionals) volunteers work to create a positive, hands-on STEM experience. Middle and high school labs require that at least one leader have a STEM background.
