National Society of Black Engineers Jr.

mainThe National Society of Black Engineers Pre-College Initiative (PCI) Program is designed to stimulate interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields and to encourage students in grades K–12 to attend college and pursue technical degrees.  PCI  provides activities to help students discover firsthand how engineering and technology relate to the world around them and discover the excitement of academic excellence, leadership, technical development and teamwork. The NSBE Jr. membership is $5.00 annually, and students may join individually if no charter exists at their school.

For teachers, the website offers a resource page with links to activities, competitions, college prep lessons, and a tool kit for developing and evaluating a successful mentoring program.
