Andrew Smith (pictured), a member of Cub Scout Pack 730 and a St. Anne Catholic School fifth grader, recently received the prestigious Dr. Charles H. Townes Supernova medal. The Cub Scout Supernova award recognizes superior achievement by a Cub Scout in the fields of science, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The rigorous requirements include completion of research studies, scientific projects, and engineering activities. In one of Andrew’s science experiments titled “Fast or Friction,” he analyzed and tested chemical properties of lubricants to optimize the speed of Pinewood Derby race cars. That work also resulted in a second-place award for the citywide Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston Science Fair competition.
