NESA Jamboree 2021

 

***UPDATE 02/23/2021:
Good Morning Scouts,
We have reached our cap of 800 Scouts registered, so no additional spots are available for our 2021 Jamboree. THANK YOU to all who signed up! For those who would have liked to attend this year event, we hope you'll consider attending our 2022 Jamboree, which should be a more traditional, in-person event.
For those who will be attending this year's event, we are very excited to host you virtually at the US Naval Academy and cannot wait to see everyone on Saturday, 06 March 2021 @ 0800 EST! Troop Leaders, your rosters are editable up until Feb 27th. Please make sure all your Scouts are on the Google Form sent with your confirmation email. Once rosters are finalized, we will send an email to all registered Troops with links to the sessions, any pre-reqs, etc.
Yours In Scouting,
The 2021 USNA NESA Staff

***UPDATE 02/19/2021:
Good Morning Scouts,
Thank you for all the support of this year's event so far! We currently have 670 Scouts registered, so we can take just over 100 more. We will be hosting an optional FAQ session via Facebook Live on this page tomorrow at 1800 EST (6:00 PM EST) to answer any questions you may have.
Yours In Scouting,
The 2021 USNA NESA Staff

Good Afternoon Scouts,
 
The 2021 USNA NESA Jamboree is happening VIRTUALLY this year on Saturday, March 6th, 2021 from 0800 EST to 1545 EST for up to 800 Scouts! While we are disappointed that we are not able to offer a traditional event due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are thrilled to still offer the chance for Scouts to earn a STEM-oriented merit badge and interact with Midshipmen.
 
We are able to offer the following badges (each Scout may take one): Aviation, Chemistry, Digital Technology, Engineering, Medicine, Nuclear Science, Oceanography, Programming, Radio, Robotics, and Space Exploration. We are also offering a Leadership course, which is not a merit badge but still very beneficial.
 
The itinerary (subject to change due to COVID regulations) currently includes (all times EST):
0800-0810 - Kickoff
0815-1200 - Merit Badge Session
1230-1315 - Keynote Speaker #1
1330-1415 - Keynote Speaker #2
1430-1450 - Lab Video from STEM Dept
1500-1530 - Admissions Briefing
1530-1545 - Closing with an opportunity for feedback and questions
 
This is a great opportunity for Scouts - by giving up one day, they will be able to further their interest in STEM, learn about the Naval Academy, and interact with other Scouts from across the country all while following COVID guidelines.
 
Registration will open today and close Saturday, February 27th, 2021. This year, we will utilize a first-come first-serve model. A Troop Leader will reserve a spot for their Troop, then have the opportunity to sign up at least one but no more than twenty Scouts. Due to this event being smaller than our usual one, we are able to lower our price to only $5 per Scout (20 Scouts maximum per Troop), which includes an exclusive patch and will cover the cost of shipping the patch and blue cards to your Troop.
If you have any questions, please comment below and we will do our best to answer them in a timely manner!
 
Yours In Scouting,
The 2021 USNA NESA Staff
