As a Navigator, I promise to do my best to create a world free of prejudice and ignorance.
Over the 1st half of this year, the NOVES Navigators undertook a huge STEM Project to build a cardboard raft capable of holding up to 8 Navi"GATOR" sailors. They learned about buoyancy, structural integrity, engineering, drafting, rowing and teamwork along the way. The scouts were able to earn their Rafting and Paddle Sports Badges during the execution of the project. The Cardboard Boat Regatta took place on a very rainy Sunday at Lake Accotink in Fairfax. The weather did not dampen our spirits, the Gator Crew was energetic and ready to compete! They took 1st Place in both of the races they participated in, both the School/Scout Group Category and the 14 & Under Category. Let's hear it for those Gators!!
NoVES Navigator Year in Review
NoVES Navigators (Chapter 99) have been an active troop since summer of 2015. We have three Scout leaders and plan an event every month during the school year. The age range for our Navigators is first through sixth grade and currently about 20 Scouts are enrolled in our chapter.
We earned 6 badges our first year/18 months 2015-2016 and 9 badges in 2017. Our last badge ceremony was in January 2018. We are undertaking a huge STEM inspired project in the Spring of 2018. We are learning about buoyancy, structural integrity, rowing and teamwork as we prepare to enter the Cardboard Boat Regatta at Lake Accotink in Fairfax this June!
