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. Students 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 students will take on a new project, culminating with a presentation, design competition and physical competitions that all parents are encouraged to attend.
This three-week program will be open to students who are current 3rd through 5th graders. Each SEEK site is typcially held at a local elementary or middle school and hosts anywhere between 50 to 100 students per grade level for a total of 150 or 300 students per site. Approximately 35 to 50 Collegiate and Professional mentors manage, guide and facilitate the program though high quality STEM education across the United States each summer for SEEK.
The program is a commuter-based program for students, Monday through Friday, 8:30 am and ending at 3:30 pm.
SEEK Participants will:
Be exposed to STEM through hands on engineering projects
