    FIRST® LEGO® League

    Tomorrow’s innovators practice imaginative thinking and teamwork. Guided by two or more adult Coaches, FIRST LEGO League* teams (up to 10 members, grades 4-8**) research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS®, then compete on a table-top playing field. NSBE's FIRST LEGO League Championship takes place at the Annual Convention. Students must be a participant of an active NSBE Jr. chapter.

    The MATHCOUNTS competition is a fun and challenging math program designed for teams of four U.S. middle school students to increase their academic and professional opportunities. During the program year, MATHCOUNTS coaches provide thought-provoking, non-routine, fun problems to engage, challenge and make each participant a better problem solver. A circuit of exams is given to students at their NSBE Fall Regional Conference, which is held in October or November. The first- and second-place winner from each region competes at NSBE's Annual Convention. Participants are provided access to an online mathematics resource to support their yearlong learning.

    Ten80 Student Racing Challenge

    The Ten80 Student Racing Challenge is a supplemental STEM curriculum of Ten80 Education’s National STEM League. Students in grades 6 – 12 form Ten80 Student Racing Challenge teams that use model (1:10 scale) radio--controlled cars and mimic professional motorsport teams. The first weeks of engagement are spent learning how systems operate and how to organize data, rather than following "build" directions. After being "certified" in mechanical systems, data and problem solving students spend the duration of the program year rebuilding the car with improved parts. Once students master the fundamentals of problem solving, data and mechanical systems, they specialize in areas of personal interest, to include project management, marketing and business. The curriculum specifically addresses Enterprise and Data-Driven Design projects. NSBE’s Ten80 STEM Initiative finals take place at the Annual Convention.
