Hello Region Three PCI Students, Parents, and advisors! I am so excited about FRC, what we have to offer you, and glad you are interested in attending.  There will be many workshops focused on leadership development, transitioning into college, and opportunities to networking with collegiate students.

The competitions offered will be the Try Math-A-Lon for high school students and “Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?” offered to three teams of elementary, middle, and high school students. This page will give all the information about the conferences key events, and details about event registration if applicable. Any changes or updates will be communicated with you promptly.

Events

  • The purpose of the Kid Zone Conference is to increase students in grades K-5th interest in Science, Technology, Engineering careers to allow them to excel academically and succeed in High School and college.

  • Try Math- A – Lon- 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.

  • This workshop will help prepare students to write abstracts properly for science labs and for the Technical Innovations Competition held at the NSBE National Convention for PCI students.

  • A lunch networking session where collegiate students will sit amongst PCI students to answer questions and facilitate conversation about life in college, engineering courses, and general advice for students.

  • This competition will be a fifth grade, middle school, and high school team answering questions at a fifth grade level in front of the entire PCI conference attendee audience. Teams will be made up of three students that must audition to be selected. All selected participants will win an award for participating; however, be excited because the winning team will earn a grand prize! If you would like to audition a team for this competition, please click here!

  • This workshop will consist of a brief general introduction and explanation of each of the main engineering disciplines. Following the explanation, students will have the opportunity to view poster boards and ask questions to collegiate students representing each of the engineering fields.

  • Get your pretty dresses and nice suits out! This will be a PCI “Prom” event where students can dress to impress. There will be a grand entrance for students to pose for the camera and more surprises to come.

Can’t wait to see you all there!
