The SEEK Program is designed to be a fun and engaging educational experience, led by NSBE engineering students and technical professionals dedicated to pursuing professional excellence and giving back to the community. The SEEK Program utilizes a hands-on design curriculum supplied by various Educational Curriculum companies and Cooperate Sponsors. Campers will work in teams, using their knowledge to solve problems and create products while discovering the underlying math and science principles involved in these processes. Each week, the campers will take on a new project, culminating with a presentation, design competition and physical competitions that all parents are encouraged to attend.
This FREE three-week program will be open to students who are current 3rd through 5th graders or current 6th through 8th graders* . The program will be held at a local elementary school or middle school, and will include 100 students in each grade level, for a total of 300 students served per program. Fifty Collegiate mentors will be utilized to facilitate the program.
The camp is a commuter-based program for students, Monday through Friday, 8:30 am and ending at 3:30 pm. Mentors will reside on a near-by collegiate campus, arriving one week early for training and preparation.
