HELP US GRADUATE 10,000 BLACK ENGINEERS BY 2025 BY THE FOLLOWING:
Be 1 of 10,000
The U.S. needs more Black Engineers to continue our nation’s progress through STEM: science, technology, engineering and math. To help solve this problem, the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) is calling on 7th graders across the country to buckle down academically, set their sights on college and commit to graduating with an engineering degree in 2025!
Summer Engineering Experiences for Kids (SEEK)
The Summer Engineering Experience for Kids (SEEK), founded in 2007, is the nation’s largest summer engineering program geared toward African-American pre-college students.
SEEK participants engage in team-based, competitive engineering design activities and learn science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) concepts, under the guidance of “SEEK mentors,” NSBE collegiate members from across the U.S. The ultimate goal of the program is to increase the number of college engineering students and engineering professionals among African Americans, a community that is greatly underrepresented in this field.
More than 15,000 students in grades 3–12, more than 20,000 parents and more than 2,500 mentors have participated in SEEK since its launch in Washington, D.C., 10 years ago. The engineering design activities for the children and teens are provided by SAE International — NSBE’s curriculum
