    Try-Math-A-Lon (TMAL) (11-12 Grade)

    Try-Math-A-Lon (TMAL) is a yearlong tutoring program meant to foster good study habits for minority students, groom them for success in STEM courses, help prepare them for standardized exams such as the ACT and SAT, and promote healthy competition and good sportsmanship. The TMAL competition is held between teams of four NSBE Jr. members and one alternate. Each team is composed of high school students in grades 9–10 or 11–12.  Participants are provided access to an online mathematics resource to support their yearlong learning. This tool enables students to earn points during the program year, as they engage in various activities. Students with the top scores win prizes. Students compete year round and advance to a culminating event at the national competition, which is held at NSBE’s Annual Convention.

    VEX Robotics

    VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) is an exciting engineering challenge for high school students, presented in the form of a game. Year round students, with guidance from their advisors and mentors, build innovative robots and compete year-round in a variety of matches. In addition to learning valuable engineering skills, students gain life skills such as teamwork, perseverance, communication, project management - and critical thinking. The VEX Robotics Competition prepares students to become future innovators: 95 percent of participants report an increased interest in STEM subject areas and pursuing STEM-related careers. NSBE's VEX Robotics championship takes place at the Annual Convention.

    The NSBE Championship Team Excellence Award Winner will compete at the 2017 VEX Robotics World Championship.

    Eligibility and Requirements:

               1.) All participants must be active PAID NSBE Jr. members.
               2.) Grades 9-12.

    Ten80 STEM Initiative

    The Ten80 STEM Initiative™ is a supplemental STEM curriculum of Ten80 Education’s National STEM League. Students in grades 6 – 12 form Ten80 Student Racing Challenge teams that use model (1:10 scale) radio--controlled cars and mimic professional motorsport teams. The first weeks of engagement are spent learning how systems operate and how to organize data, rather than following "build" directions. After being "certified" in mechanical systems, data and problem solving students spend the duration of the program year rebuilding the car with improved parts. Once students master the fundamentals of problem solving, data and mechanical systems, they specialize in areas of personal interest, to include project management, marketing and business. The curriculum specifically addresses Enterprise and Data-Driven Design projects. NSBE’s Ten80 STEM Initiative finals take place at the Annual Convention.

    KidWind Challenge

    The KidWind Project consists of a team exploring the science behind wind and other renewable forms of energy. The goal is to make renewable energy widely accessible through hands-on activities that are challenging, engaging, and teach basic science and engineering principles. Students dedicate their year of engagement to building a small turbine to produce as much power as possible. They are tasked with thinking about the best construction techniques and the most innovative design to make their turbine operate. This program is open to high school NSBE Jr. members with students in grades 9-12. NSBE’s KidWind Challengecompetition takes place at the Annual Convention.
