DMV NSBE, Jr.

The DMV NSBE, Jr. Chapter is a Pre-College Initiative (PCI) Program of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) which is designed to stimulate the interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields, or STEM. The goal is to encourage students in grades K–12 to attend college and pursue technical degrees.  Students are exposed to engineering through a year-round STEM program that includes competitions in robotics, wind turbine energy challenges, math and designing cities of the future.

Mathematics Mastery

Math is the basis of all things STEM.  Without math proficiency students will have difficulty being successful in robotics & other STEM related endeavors.  DMV NSBE, Jr. Chapter’s PCI program will provide activities to help students discover first-hand how math, engineering and technology relate to the world around them and discover the excitement of academic excellence, leadership, technical development and teamwork.

Preparing for the Digital World!

In addition to math proficiency & robotics competitions, we prepare children for success in the digital world by teaching them how to code with our Microsoft Code Academy.  Students can start with Scratch and learn HTML/CSS, JavaScript, Python and code real world projects!

Dr. Eugene Anderson, FLL Coach

image49

As Vice President of Access & Success with The Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU), Dr. Anderson served on a research team under the advisory of  Dr. Karl Reid, Executive Director, National Society of Black Engineers presenting  "A Snapshot of Diversity in Degrees Conferred in Engineering" a new study which looks at diversity in engineering.   


Dr. Anderson shared, that "Ironically, while doing my research for this study, what I found showed me why programs like  NSBE Jr are so vital for students of color - especially girls; further reinforcing my decision to ensure that my children were in this NSBE, Jr. chapter!"   


Dr. Anderson uses his engineering skills to serve as one of our awesome parent coaches of his daughter's First Lego League (FLL) Robotics Teams.

Meet Noah Yared, son of DMV NSBE, Jr. Chapter Advisor, Sehine Gizaw.  Noah is currently an Aerospace Engineering, Freshman at CalTech University and alumni of School Without Walls HS, in DC - 

Class of 2018. 


As a senior at Walls, Noah was extensively involved in STEM, having joined and gained leadership positions in nearly all the STEM clubs at Walls.  Noah’s passion for STEM exceeded the walls of HS, with him taking classes with university students at George Washington University (GWU) while  concurrently working with professors as a research assistant at the university’s transportation engineering lab to help develop intelligent driverless cars. His extensive involvement and avid work in STEM allowed him to hold several engineering internships at Yale University, As a QuestBridge Scholar, Noah received approximately $300,000 in scholarship to attend California Institute of Technology - Caltech, the 3rd highest ranked university in the world after Oxford and Cambridge.  


Before heading off to CalTech, Noah was dedicated to helping our Chapter President start DMV NSBE, Jr.
