The Pre-College Initiative (PCI) program is designed to stimulate the interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields, or STEM. The goal is to encourage students in grades K–12 to attend college and pursue technical degrees. Our PCI program provides activities to help students discover firsthand how engineering and technology relate to the world around them and discover the excitement of academic excellence, leadership, technical development and teamwork.
Participate in NSBE’s PCI programs by becoming a NSBE Jr member. NSBE Jr membership is available to all students in grades 6-12. Membership is only $5, but the level of exposure to engineering is priceless.
We encourage you to participate with a chapter. These chapters may be affiliated with schools, churches, or other community organizations. Find a chapter in your area now.
NSBE Jr chapter advisors who want to join NSBE should join as NSBE Professionals or NSBE Professionals Affiliate members, depending on background.
Annual dues are only $5! There may be additional chapter and regional dues that you have to pay to be considered a fully active member.
If you choose not to be affiliated with a chapter in your local area, you will be considered a "Member At-Large," classified by your geographical region. Members "At-Large" receive the same national benefits as those who belong to a chapter.
The membership term is one year from August 1 – July 31 of the following year.
When you pay for your membership, check the “Auto renew” box to automatically renew your membership this year. Never be without membership benefits again!
NSBE is working toward expanding membership eligibility to all students that NSBE programs impact. Until then, please continue to keep in touch with us through programming available for younger students. Rest assured, we have you in our database and will continue to track your student while they wait for eligibility.
