Welcome to the wonderful world of science! For over 30 years the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) has supported the endeavors of talented Black engineering students and professionals. The mission is to “increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.” We as a society know that, in order to accomplish this mission, we must raise the awareness of pre-college students to opportunities in science and technology. Science fairs are an excellent venue for pre- college students to display their creativity and scientific abilities.
The National Society of Black Engineers presents the PCI Science Fair, an annual Regional and National program for the year 2012-2013. This program is tailored to allow pre-college students the opportunity to compete and explore the many applications of science utilizing projects, competitions, and science fairs. Regional Science Fairs will occur at Fall Regional Conferences and a National Science Fair will occur at the National Convention.
Students in grades 6-12 are eligible for the science fair. The fair will be divided into two classifications:
Middle School (Junior): 6th- 8th grade students
High School (Senior): 9th-12th grade students
All registered NSBE Jr. participants must submit a 500-word maximum abstract to IMPak, the NSBE Science Fair Coordinator (email@example.com), and your Regional PCI Chair with the subject heading as follows Abstract_FirstName.LastName. It should briefly describe the objective, the experimental procedure, and expected results of the project.
Abstracts must be received no later than October 20, 2012 for all Regional PCI Science Fairs and no later than February 11, 2013 for the National PCI Science Fair. Abstracts will be judged on creativity, originality, scientific content, and clarity. Please adhere strictly to these deadlines as there will be NO EXCEPTIONS for late submissions.
