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. SEEK’s strategy is to cultivate enthusiasm and inspire youth to learn more about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) with the intent that some will pursue careers in the STEM field. Educators, organizations such as SEEK, and policy makers work diligently to build the STEM pipeline in our country. However, the first educator and influence on a child are his or her parents. We want to not only utilize the support of our parents during the program but to inspire the kids throughout the year.
Parent involvement is essential for SEEK to provide the best possible program. With the goal of improving SEEK nationally; we look to formalize a parent committee in EVERY SEEK city to support the efforts of the WHQ staff and our Mentors. The parent committee provides ideas on ways NSBE can expand or improve the SEEK program, as well as volunteer at your local SEEK program.
