“Leadership tomorrow depends on how we educate our students today”
Now more than ever, it’s important for our children to have G.U.T.S. Now when you think of G.U.T.S., I’m not referring to the ones on the inside of you. I’m referring to something that I call, “Growing Up Thinking STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics”).
To help tackle this problem the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) offers the Pre- College Initiative Program. The PCI program helps expose students early to the STEM fields and as a result more students grow up thinking STEM as possible degree and career goals for the future. NSBE also offers other STEM based youth programs such as the Summer Engineering Experience for Kids (SEEK),Science Fair, KidZone, and NascarTen80 just to name a few.
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.
If have any questions regarding general information, competitions, membership, or chartering a NSBE Jr. chapter in your area, I would be more than happy to assist you.
