The Bill Hart District STEM committee is planning a Boy Scout, Webelos, and Arrow of Light STEM & NOVA badge event at Six Flags Magic Mountain on November 17th and 18th 2017. 

 

The event is a Friday night campout in the park that includes a private behind the scenes tour and ride of three roller coasters on Saturday morning to really see how STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) make roller coasters and thrill rides work.  The event also includes:

 

  • NOVA badge sessions to help scouts earn the NOVA badge or additional pi pins
  • The WLACC STEM trailer there demonstrating technologies such as 3D printing
  • Dinner and breakfast provided

 

Cost is $75 per person (even for season pass holders) and includes park admission for all day on Saturday.  Further event details and badge prerequisite information will be emailed closer to the event date.  Open to Boy scout Troops, Girl Scout Troops and Venture Crews, so, for awareness, the camping may be co-ed.

 

Note that the event is rain or shine.  Tickets are non-refundable, except in the case of event cancellation.
