Video: Inside the Vortex, the STEM Scouts mobile lab

Boys and girls won’t have to travel far and wide to participate in STEM Scouts. They can just let all the fun of STEM Scouts come to them.

I’m at the BSA’s National Annual Meeting this week, and I got to check out the Vortex, the STEM Scouts mobile lab. It’s a whole lot of STEM Scouts awesomeness on wheels. STEM Scouts, for those who don’t know, is a new program that’s expanding to include 13 councils this fall.

Paul Sharp, Assistant National Director of STEM Programs, gave me a quick tour. I put together this video, which is the first of several I’ll make from the National Annual Meeting.

During my visit at the STEM Scouts exhibit I also met 16-year-old Savannah McMillan, who showed me a cool device that makes smoke rings. Savannah is a STEM Scout herself in Tennessee.
