GGAC acknowledges its very first female Scouts BSA Thomas Edison Supernova awardee.

Sierra R, a Life Scout from Troop 2220 in Fremont, CA, was recently awarded the Thomas Edison STEM Supernova Award, the highest Supernova award for Scouts BSA.  This precocious 9th grader pursued the award following her successful completion of the Bernard Harris Supernova one year ago.  As part of the requirements of this current award, Sierra wrote a lengthy research essay on the utility of 3-D printing in Medicine and her level of work and organization are currently held as a standard for all STEM Supernova award submissions in the Council going forward.  She isn’t quite done yet.  Sierra has her eye on the national Albert Einstein STEM Supernova award for Venturers.  Outside of Scouting, Sierra volunteers with the Surfrider Foundation and Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy.
